"The path to a passionate life is often way more complex than the simple advice 'follow your passion' would suggest."
You can find out more in his book "So Good They Can't Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love" which you can find here: https://goo.gl/zcivlU

You've been told you should follow your passion, to do what you love and the money will follow. But how sound is this advice? Cal Newport argues that it's astonishingly wrong.

I uploaded this video here because I believe it holds a very important message, that should be shared as much as possible. I hope I do not infringe on any legal issues because that was certainly not my intention.

BTW: If you haven't read "How to make friends and influence people", this is required reading that will open doors for you. Get it at http://amzn.to/2jDDJcH
