Finding your passion is a lot like looking for romance.
We long for that fateful day when we will magically come across that work that will seemingly “choose” us and sweep us off our feet.
Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it?
The thing is, that’s not how it works.
You have to show up.
You have to try new things.
You have to date.
Sitting on the sidelines, disengaging and allowing the fear of not knowing what you are doing to hold you back.
Of course you don’t know what you are doing.
That’s the point.
You are showing up, engaging and connecting so that you can find what you you love doing and who you love doing it with.
I don’t know a lot about romance or have a step-by-step process for finding meaningful work.
But I know this:
No one ever gets swept off their feet while sitting down.
