Screw Finding Your Passion
Remember back when you were a kid? You would just do things. You never thought to yourself, “What are the relative merits of learning baseball versus football?” You just ran around the playground and played baseball and football. You built sand castles and played tag and asked silly questions and looked for bugs and dug up grass and pretended you were a sewer monster. Nobody told you to do it, you just did it. And the beautiful thing was, if you hated baseball, you just stopped playing it. And if you loved looking for bugs, you just did that. There was no bullshit. Today I received approximately the 11,504th email this year from a person telling me that they don’t know what to do with their life. And of course, I didn’t respond. But more importantly, what I want to say to these people is this: that’s the whole point — “not knowing” is the whole fucking point. The common complaint among a lot of these people is that they need to ‘find their passion.’ I call bullshit. It’s priorities.
