Passion as a Skill


Bennett Huhn

One Stone

In school, it’s easy to think of passion for a subject as something you either have or don’t have. It doesn’t have to be that way. To find motivation to do great things, you have to push yourself to train your passion. When curiosities are explored, iterated, and prototyped, they often become passions--the intrinsic motivator that helps us find meaning and flow. The thing that drives us toward professionalism and excellence. Passion isn't just something you’re born with. Passion is a skill.
