People use the word “passion” too lightly.

“Follow your passion.” “Do what you are passionate about.”

I’ve avoided using that word for my work. Passion has a really strong meaning for me. It’s not something I take lightly.

A necessary characteristic of a passion is that it evokes strong emotions. If it doesn’t make me ecstatic and cry, then it’s not my passion.

There are only 2 things I can think of that I’m passionate about — people and music.
