My reg­u­lar read­ers prob­a­bly know that ever since read­ing Gary Vaynerchuk’s book Crush It, I have been try­ing to fig­ure out what my pas­sion is. And I think I have final­ly done it.

It actu­al­ly hap­pened a few weeks ago, but I for­got to blog about it. I was con­tem­plat­ing all the things I do and where I spend all my time, when I had an epiphany.

My pas­sion is my fam­i­ly.

That’s it. That’s all there is to it. My jour­ney is com­plete. But that is only half of the epiphany.

What I also real­ized is that, frankly, it doesn’t mat­ter much what I do for a liv­ing. What does mat­ter is that it enables me to focus on my pas­sion.

I need a job that pays me enough to meet their needs and at least some of their wants. I need a job that allows me to take time off to spend extra time with my fam­i­ly. I need a job that allows me to take bet­ter care of their health.

What I do in that job real­ly doesn’t mat­ter. I am no longer inter­est­ed in being hap­py with my job, just as long as it keeps me busy and rel­a­tive­ly con­tent, and that it allows me to focus on my pas­sion.

My fam­i­ly.
