“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”Oprah Winfrey
What I wrote about ambition also applies to passion, curiosity, and skill. Passion expands to more passions.
Questions lead to partial answers, and partial answers lead to more questions.
And the more I learn about something, the deeper I desire to go. And not only that, learning a skill usually leads to discovering other interesting skills. If you are driven by genuine curiosity, your interests will go deep and wide.
There’s a catch though—our time is limited. Our interests might be abundant but our time isn’t. Which means we have to choose what’s most important to us.
If you could do anything in the universe, what would you do?
Think bigger than a vacation at the beach—which is my immediate response. 🙂 If money wasn’t an issue, what would you do?
Would you start your own business?
Would you spend more time with your family?
Would you (finally) learn piano like you’ve been wanting to for the past forever?
That’s where you should apply your passion, skill, and curiosity. Even if you have to do it on the side, or only on weekends. Life is too short for us to ignore and postpone what we really want to do.
Maybe going full-time on your own tech company isn’t possible right now. Okay, so what’s the next best thing? You could work on your hard and soft skills, like web apps and leadership to cultivate yourself into the person that could run a successful company. You could work on your network of creatives and entrepreneurs. You could take 10-15% of your paycheck that you would normally spend on whatever-whatever’s and save it for when the time is right to leap.
Now is the time to take a step.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
