Identifying Your Passion

PassionThere have been four occasions during the holiday break when college students have reached out to me for advice with their career search and for potential internships. In each of the conversations, the question about personal passion surfaced quickly. How does one identify their passion? How can I make a living doing what I love? Where does passion fit in life's professional equation?

The conversations reminded me of how important is to go to fun instead of going to work. It's been my personal mantra for years and years. I was also reminded that this is a good time of year to repost an exercise that I use to help people of all ages identify their passion.

Here's a post from 2011 that I called "Going To Fun."  Happy New Year!
