I’ve developed a reputation for telling the truth — at least the truth from my perspective. And that’s all I can give. There’s no such thing as objectivity when it comes to different aspects of life, especially things like the nebulous word success.

At the end of the day, you’re a grown adult. Read what you want to read and make up your mind based on your perspective intersecting with mine. Pretty simple. And come to the ultimate understanding when it comes to information and decision making.

Life comes with tradeoffs and opportunity costs. You can’t experience the positive aspects of a decision and remove the unintended consequences at the same time.

Take self-improvement. It can help you find the inspiration you need to change, but it can also lead to nothing more than a form of entertainment.

Learning how to find your passion has a double-edged sword, too because you can spend too much time thinking about it instead of finding it. It can also lead you to pursue the wrong goals for the wrong reasons. Let’s take a look at the passion debate at every angle so you can make a decision that works for you.
