In his new book, 'So Good they Can't Ignore You', Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed -- preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work -- but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping.
After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. This book will change the way we think about our careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.
