IS PASSION NECESSARY FOR GREAT WORK?

 Is Passion Necessary For Great Work, Ron Malhotra, Magnify, Influence, Success, Wealth

“When do you think you’ll retire Ron? I hope I’m not working like this in 10 years from now, he explained.”

This is a statement I’ve heard before, I thought. Many times before.

As someone who assists people plan for their retirement, I understand the need for people to finally stop after having worked for decades.

From a “retirement/financial planning” perspective it makes sense.

But as a self-motivated & passionate individual where MY REWARD IS THE WORK ITSELF, I personally cannot conceive the idea of retirement for myself.

And I suspect, I am not the only one.

For anyone who has followed their passion & chosen an occupation that is in line with their values, the idea of a future retirement from work doesn’t carry appeal.

I think it’s silly to not do what you love. Why?

Because I cannot imagine how anyone can achieve greatness in their career if they have a half hearted attitude about work.

Will a person who doesn’t love what they do, NATURALLY obsess about doing a great job?

Will a person who doesn’t love what they do likely to outwork, outperform & outlast the person who does?

I’m not suggesting you have to choose a career that is aligned to your passion.

Just don’t expect to fulfill your full potential if you don’t..
