I find most articles on passion ridiculously convincing. Whether it’s a 200-page study by two semi-accomplished researchers or an op-ed by an overly-accomplished “guru”, everyone’s sure that you should follow your passion. Unless they’re sure you shouldn’t.
My knee-jerk reaction has long been to skip any article that has to do with the subject, so when I saw The Passion Trap in my RSS items, I was going to do just that. But then I noticed it’s published on Oscillatory Thoughts, Bradley Voyek’s blog. Voyek doesn’t write that often, but when he does, it’s usually worth a consideration.
I’ll tell you one thing: This time, I’m very glad to have made the exemption.Share:
