Should You Follow Your Passion?

Should You Follow Your Passion?

Welcome to our open thread, where we turn the conversation over to our community.

This month, the most popular piece by far has been Don’t Ask, “What’s My Passion? Ask This Instead where I argue that we should focus on the skills we want to develop when it comes to finding meaningful work. Yet the feedback has pointed me to a larger conversation around the role of passion in our careers, one that I think would be great to continue here.

So what do you think of this popular bit of advice? What does “follow your passion” mean to you? Share your thoughts below.
