This is a follow-up post from my last post – Being Passionately Curious. Where I described the point of Albert Einstein’s quote “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” which in mind is not meant to uplift curiosity on the account of ignoring persistence, but is emphasizing curiosity as an isolated piece.
I’ll keep this short because I have to go to my university lectures. My point in the last post was justifying curiosity and the case of no special interest. A large population is born in this way, we can feel lost, while the other people are already pursuing their paths. My goal was to say that it is normal, and that you are not alone. That you have your own strengths. And in no way was my intention to cut your strings for seriousness.
When the time comes, one should definitely choose from the many interest one holds and combine them with the strengths. That way, one can create the path which can both fulfill his mind and his stomach. Write down your strengths and some of your most valued interests. Next look for or create a path, employable or self-employable options that will bring something to the table. You have the ability to accomplish anything if you just focus. And there is no rule that says that we should focus only on one (not that you can focus on too many).
Be a philosopher in heart, a scientist in mind, and an economist in hands.
