First, there is your passion. Generally speaking, our skills are a collection of things we are good at, and within that collection there is usually one thing about which we are deeply passionate. Discovering your passion is not easy. It took me more than a decade of working to discover what I was passionate about. And that decade-plus of seeking came after decades of learning, living, and all that. It is not trivial to figure out what you are passionate about. You’ll know you’ve identified it when you discover the thing that makes you mad with joy and fulfills you like nothing else in the universe. Then you’ll recognize: “I’m good at x, y, z, but I’m passionate about q.”
