I think many of us continue to explore the question of “what should I care about” until we get too tired and settle with whatever we are comfortable with. This is fine, as comfort often best aligns with our personal/professional/social goals.
But I wonder if/how one gets to the point of conviction.
When do we get to a point where we are 100% confident in what we are doing that we know it is the single most important thing to be working on for our lives?
When do you get to that point and how do you accelerate finding it? Can you?
I think what ends up happening often times is that we are all waiting around to find the perfect “life’s work” subject and we never get there because there is never a perfect opportunity.
So we settle.
Having conviction around what matters is really important — even if you are wrong. The answer is fluid.
