Following your passion, or not

Dan Cable writes in the Harvard Business Review that contrary to popular belief, conveyed by the likes of Steve Jobs, we should not necessarily follow our passion when choosing what work we do… “if you’re looking to find a career that will matter to you, instead of looking only in the direction of ‘passion,’ also think about the activities that you return to — despite the fact that they are harder to complete than things you are more immediately or emotionally drawn to.” Often it is the difficult and challenging roles that prove to be the most meaningful, and they may not be the ones you love doing.
