How to Find Your Passion*
Not the Definitive Guide, But Some Useful Tips
At the beginning of this book, the author states that he believes this is the ultimate guide for finding your passion. While I don’t quite agree with that broad statement, I do think this book does have some worthwhile tips and processes that will help you figure out more about yourself as well as give you clues as to what could drive a more passionate life for you. There are some familiar tools here, like the Myers-Briggs test, but there are also some concepts that were relatively new to me, and I found to be actually quite helpful. I had heard of ikigai before but had never seen it really explained or explored. It fit in perfectly in this book and actually gave me quite a bit to think about.
This is a relatively short book, so there is no way that it could be the ultimate guide to finding your passion. In fact, in the section on how to turn your passion into a career, the length of the description of the steps is almost laughable. Still, in each chapter, the author does give some useful pointers as well as some exercises and other food for thought. All in all, I found this to be a good read that got me thinking. I like books that do that!
