“Follow Your Passion” is bad advice

I Will Teach You To Be Rich author Ramit Sethi on this advice.

The “find your passion” idea is the kind of insipid, meaningless argument most frequently made by B-level speakers and middle managers who have nothing specific to offer…People love the “passion” idea because it allows us to wait for a mythical day where we find this elusive passion…and then ride off into the sunset on a white pony.

I prefer a different approach: Becoming world-class at something, then letting the passion follow.
