Screw Finding Your Passion

Screw Finding Your Passion | Knowledge Broker |

If you don’t have any idea what to do with yourself, what makes you think some jackass with a website would? I’m a writer, not a fortune teller.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

The problem is not a lack of passion for something. The problem is productivity. The problem is perception. The problem is acceptance.

The problem isn’t passion. It’s never passion.

It’s priorities.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Narrative and Passion

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Narrative and Passion | Knowledge Broker |

Narrative and passion are becoming increasingly central to performance at all levels – individual, institution and ecosystem. But are they completely separate topics or are they related in some way?

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

Research show that a very large precentage of the global workforce is unengaged and struggle to find a deeper meaning in what they do.

John suggests that narratives can create a very different world, one where pressure evolves from a source of stress to a source of excitement, calling us to achieve even more of our potential, both as individuals and collectively.

You can follow John on Twitter here: @jhagel.

Brilliant stuff from the great John Hagel. Hope the rest of the world catches up soon...

Though the outcomes are dramatically different, personalities Steve Jobs and Lance Armstrong both displayed narcissistic traits. Can organizations accentuate the positive elements of people with traits like passion and drive?
