Confession time. I love my job but I am not passionate about what I do. What I do for a living is not my passion, and I honestly think that is a good thing. I know that most of us (and by “us” I mean Generation X) heard growing up that if you find a career that you a passionate about, then you’ll never work a day in your life. Now having spent nearly 30 years in the workforce I feel pretty confident in saying that this idea is complete and utter nonsense. This is not to say that being passionate about your work, job, or career is bad, quite the opposite, but it is not necessary. In fact, I would argue that having a passion that is not related to your career is healthy. But then again, what do I know?
