Should you follow your passions?

Conventional wisdom says that we should do what we love. But, more importantly, you need to stay committed to doing what you love. We are constantly being told that we should persevere and soldier on, even if at first it seems too hard. Despite all this emphasis on working hard and keeping at it, however, we don’t really believe that it will get us to the top. In our heart of hearts, we know that it’s talent, not perseverance, that gets people to the top.

Talent is overrated. What you really need is grit and determination.

Let’s dig more into it.
