Passion

A lot of the recent discussion about Steve Jobs’ Stanford commencement address centered around his statement that “You’ve got to find what you love”. This is good career advice but it takes more than love or passion to succeed.

If you’re going to do something you’re passionate about, make sure you’re good at it too and it makes $$$.

As Nivi, articulates, You should do something

  1. You’re Passionate about.

  2. You’re Awesome at.

  3. That makes Money.

It’s not good enough to be passionate. Steve Jobs and The Beatles followed their passion and did well. But a lot of other musicians and entrepreneurs also pursued their passion and got nowhere fast.

Music and acting should be considered hobbies. There are vast industries built around millions of peoples' false aspirations in these areas. The ones that make it to the top are a tiny fraction of all those that fail. DON'T teach music and acting at school. If you are good at either just enjoy....and get a proper job.
