Finding and monetizing your unique genius – that something that you are so good at, that comes so natural to you that you don’t even think of it as a skill – can take a long time and is a constant cycle of refinement and analysis.
It can be daunting and frustrating to find your “passion”. It is not easy. Everyone else seems to have one. It always seems to be changing on you. It’s murky. And it requires some personal therapy that can be scary.
It can be easier to identify what your passions are not. It’s sometime easier and a good first step to just be able to confidently say “I don’t like this” or “I just kinda like it” or “it’s okay, I guess” or “yeah, whatever”.
What you don’t like can be your guide to what you do.
The value in what you don’t like
