Growth Eq Academy #6: Motivation and Drive

Top

Intense motivation and drive — what we call passion — is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because it can help you accomplish great things. A curse because it can narrow your world and get you to a point where you lose perspective and burn out. This kind of passion is like rocket-fuel: extremely powerful, but only productive when pointed in the right direction. That’s what we’ll explore in this episode, drawing from science, history and practice.
