Today I published my first video in what I hope will be an extensive and useful series. I have utilized pretty much the only free time I have and set up a camera in my car so I can churn out video content for The Passionate Why on my drive to work.
I must admit it was an odd feeling at first talking to myself in the car. It took a while to get started, and then it took a while to get on a roll. I captured over 18 minutes of footage but only the last 5 minutes was usable. I will aim to improve that ratio in the future…
In the video I talk about how to find your passion, and in a somewhat unstructured way, I highlight the three major aspects. They are:
- Defining your world. Those people, things, and places that you are most connected with.
- Highlighting your skills that we’re self taught and the core reasons you learned them.
- Leveraging your life experience.
The combination of these three attributes is what can lead you to finding a passion. It is applying those self taught skills to the content of your life experience in a way that enables you to make your world a better place.
In future videos I will dive more deeply into each of these three aspects but I think this particular one does a good job of setting the stage for those future discussions.
Have a great day!
