"Growing up, we were told by guidance couselors, career advice books, the news media and others to 'follow our passion.' This advice assumes that we all have a pre-existing passion waiting to be discovered. If we have the courage to discover this calling and to match it to our livelihood, the thinking goes, we'll endup happy. If we lack this courage, we'll end up bored and unfullfilled-or worse, in law school."
Ha! It's good to know that there are others out there (even people that end up writing for The New York Times), that haven't always had a clear vision of their careers and what exactly it was going to look like.
