When passion is your compass

Grit has two components: passion and perseverance. … Enthusiasm is common. Endurance is rare.*
Angela Duckworth

How will you go about finding that thing the nature o which is totally unknown to you.**

Angela Duckworth is helping me to see how my passion is not about
as much as it is about
Almost thirty years on from the emergence of a
niggling personal question about competency,
I am still navigating continents of possibility.
It turns out that passion is my compass.
