Questions to ask yourself as you navigate the path from passion to purpose

This talk from Dr. Srikumar Rao provides more tips and thought-provoking questions that nicely complement yesterdays blog post on finding your passion and purpose:

There are two keywords to remember – story, and journey.

  1. Become clear about what you want, why you want it, AND how you can engineer what you want to create greater good to the community
  2. An attitude of “if then, this” will not serve you well. Passion does not exist IN the job, it exists within us.
  3. What stories are you telling yourself? Are these stories hurting you or helping you. Can you change your mental models (mindsets) to tell yourself a different story?
  4. What journey is your story taking you on? Is this story taking you to a place where you want to spend time?
