"Help! I’ve found that I have no passion!"

I've been following your blog for quite sometime now and your recent post struck a chord with me. I've found that I have no passion. Instead, I have a passion for the passionate, in the abstract. When I'm working near people who love what they do, can see their grand vision and have a pathway to the future it inspires me. From a chef to a programmer, if I meet a passionate person, I immediately want to be them.

I've made numerous blogs covering different topics. I've started a variety of different groups at university. I've even switched hobbies from martial arts to programming to yoyos. Nothing seems to stick. It seems I need a mentor of sorts to make sure I stay on track otherwise, some voice in my head is "ooh! try this! no no no! try this!"

My main question is, how to continue? How do you know when you should cut your losses or when you're just being a pansy? Help me focus Sebastian!

I know where you're at and I've got a number of thoughts.

First and foremost, did you see Miguel Hernandez's replied? I wrote "Passion Emerges From Action, Not Contemplation," I asked for Miguel's take because he's a sharp guy.



Walking, is such a simple act, yet it is so underrated. To me, and I think to most people, walking is very therapeutic. It helps me focus, relax, and is somewhat meditative. The best part is that it is an easy way to get some exercise.

Since I started going to University, I have been walking on average five days a week for 25 minutes there and back, which is in total about 4.4 kilometres. Not only that, but I also walk to the grocery store, to work, to restaurant, bars, etc.

Living in the city, it is very easy for me to walk wherever I need to go. This is not only because I do not have a car, but because everything I need is so incredibly close. Another great thing about walking is, that I never have to pay for gas or public transportation fare. As well I am slowly saving the environment from pollution.

Whether alone or with friends, walking helps me think clearly and be more creative. A lot of the time when I am walking home from school, I come up with the best ideas for my personal and school projects.

I am writing this today because I have missed walking. Throughout the whole summer, I have not been walking as much as I would like to and with school starting again next week, I am very much looking forward to having this little time off in my busy schedule.
