Editor's Note

Though many self-help books advise people to find their passion, this is terrible advice, says LaRae Quy in the January 15 issue of SmartBrief/Leadership.

Passion is a “hedonistic approach to life,” that is popular right now, she says. People think they need to be passionate about their jobs and if they doesn’t meet their expectations, they will just move on to something else.

Finding purpose is how people truly enjoy long-lasting fulfillment in their work and life. People need to pay attention to the types of problems in the world that interest them and draw their attention. This is where they will find their purpose because they are finding those things that are bigger, better, and bolder than themselves, she says.
