Passion is not a raw material.

Google defines passion as:
strong and barely controllable emotion.

Passion is not a raw material. It is the by-product of increasing your level of mastery on your craft.

Passion is like love. You have to do the work on the front end to reap the reward.

The only time passion comes before performance is in the dictionary.

Develop a skill and passion will follow. – Cal Newport

If you have passion before you’ve developed your skills, you’re probably delusional.

Following your passion is terrible advice. ~ Cal Newport
