Should you follow your passion, wherever it may take you? Should you only do what you love... or learn to love what you do?

Key Points:

  • Just because you’re passionate about something doesn’t mean you won’t stink at it.
  • Your happiness on the job has very little to do with the work itself.
  • Staying the course only makes sense if you’re heading in a sensible direction.
  • Never let your passion lead you, but always bring it with you.
