Passion is Overrated

Commonly I encounter someone who admires what we've done at Big Shoulders.  While doing so, they often times confess they are in a job that doesn't make them happy.  They're looking for their "passion."  I hate that word.  I think its so over used and stupid.  It's a cop out and an excuse to settle, to not risk.  First of all, you don't find your "passion" you create it or you commit to it.  That said I spent much of my twenties being scared to commit.  It's not all that unique and probably very common.  I couldn't commit, but I also didn't settle.  

Settling is the worst kind of numbness you can ever find yourself in.  Settling is simply taking the path of least resistance.  

Fight it.  Risk.  Look stupid.  Seek and be curious.
