Don’t Follow Your Passion – Fix Your Lifestyle

Fix the life­style you want. Then work back­wards from there.

A nov­el take on the typ­ic­al inspir­a­tion­al gradu­ation speech. It’s not about fol­low­ing your pas­sion or not tak­ing your­self too ser­i­ously. They’re import­ant, but this is dif­fer­ent.

The idea is to not think of your ideal job, but to think of your ideal life­style. To think of it in detail down to minute details of how you want to live your life. Only from there can you begin to con­struct your career goals – aim­ing not for that ideal job but aim­ing for that ideal life­style.

After all, isn’t that what you’re really after?
