DJH 469: passion vs. purpose
Don't know your life's purpose?
But start by making it your purpose to find your life's purpose.
You can do this by picking a project (or job) that seems interesting, then go 110% into it for a few months.
Then, see how you feel!
You'll learn about yourself and can choose the next project from there.
Self-knowledge doesn't just come from reflecting, it comes from doing and experiencing.
