One of my favorite podcasts is Work Life hosted by Adam Grant. It is witty, unconventional, and focuses on how to “make work not suck.” Adam is an ally for equality and showcases a wide variety of diverse talent on his show. If you have yet to check out his work, I highly recommend his books, TedTalks, and monthly newsletter.
In a recent episode, the experts talked about how many cultures encourage people to follow their passions, and how unhelpful that advice is. At first, this sounds counter-intuitive. We think that we want to do the work we love. We want work that has purpose and brings us energy. Yet, that alone is not enough. We need more than just passion.
Passions evolve over time.
