Following Your Passion is so Old School
Do what energizes you instead.
I love writing! I actually get up early to do it. Part of my morning routine is spending 15 to 30 minutes in the wee hours of the morning to put my inspirations on paper. Well, in a google doc. That way, I can finish up any lingering thoughts from anywhere, anytime, any day. (Usually in the parking lot before switching gears to my teaching profession).
