I am currently working on a larger project and want to share a bit about it. A critical theme of this project is that diversity and uniqueness are critical to the success of the human race and our planet Earth.
Yeah, that’s a bold claim.
And this claim lines up with something I’ve seen a lot of lately, and that’s people telling you to find your passion. Now, this is a theme I can get behind, but it bothers me that much of this propaganda is trying to sell you something (see Episode 5:Marketing and Solicitation), which I kind of despise.
But the idea of following your passion, of finding your truth, and of doing what makes you happy is something I wrestle with daily. Are we meant to realize what we’re good at and do it as a contribution to the world? Are we ‘supposed’ to figure this out? ‘Should’ we follow our dreams? I like to believe so, but in the context of all this aggressive marketing I sometimes wonder if it’s just a pipe dream of my naive youth. So I’m searching for evidence beyond the snake oil or get-rich-quick schemes I’ve been seeing.
Now that’s a long way to go to get to the purpose of this episode, which results from my research into whether or not our individual unique passions and dreams are important. And I am finding a lot of evidence to support this by melding my background in Ecology, my knowledge of psychology learned on my own personal growth journey, and my personal experience over the past few decades.
Here’s a preview of what’s to come. I think I’m on to something.
