The Shrink and The Sage

Do we need to have a passion?

In the coalition between thought and feeling, intellect has become the junior partner while passion leads. If you doubt this, type the phrase “passionate about” into a search engine, adding whatever obscure, dull subject you can think of. I got 2,380 results for “passionate about outsourcing” and 1,490 for “passionate about waste management”. It seems being committed to doing the best job possible just isn’t good enough.
