Discovering Your Passions

DISCOVER YOUR PASSIONS TO ALIGN YOU WITH YOUR PURPOSE
“Passion exists at the intersection of three or more things you are curious about”
Steven Kotler

Step 1 – Make a list of 25 things you’re curious about as specifically as possible.

 STEP 2. Hunt For Intersections – Look for places where your curiosities intersect. Where multiple streams overlap, your brain is primed for pattern recognition. Your brain releases dopamine when you recognize patterns – a highly addictive neurochemical. Dopamine helps you focus and feel high on life.

STEP 3. PLAY – Once you’ve identified the intersections, enjoy those spaces. Feed your curiosities with lectures, books, videos, articles, anything! Advance slowly so your subconscious mind can take in what you’re learning. You’ll develop expertise and intuition about the topics.

STEP 4. GO PUBLIC – SHARE YOUR NEW SKILLS WITH THE WORLD! Register for a class. Announce your newfound passion. Declare! Public recognition will fuel your passion even further.

STEP 5. TURNING PASSION INTO PURPOSE – Make a list with 15 colossal problems you want to see solved. The bigger the problem, the bigger your opportunity for fulfillment and extraordinary contribution. Write problems that have as universal scope as possible.
