This piece is unusual and good: overemphasizing passion and dream leads to the opposite. In a downtime it pays to make contribution to solve problems that never show up in your dream but is pressing strongly. A better way is to find your dream in solving problems.
Like myself, today’s twentysomethings were raised to find our dreams and follow them. But it’s a different world. And as the jobless generation grows up, we realize the grand betrayal of the false idols of passion.
Putting problems at the center of our decision-making changes everything. It’s not about the self anymore. It’s about what you can do and how you can be a valuable contributor. People working on the biggest problems are compensated in the biggest ways.
