If you understand what makes you come alive, your life becomes an epic adventure.
When I watched Sean Aiken’s TED talk, I was impressed by his creative approach to finding passion.
Like so many others, Sean left college without a clue what he wanted out of life. But instead of getting a shitty job and just slogging away for the next 50 years, he went out and created a meaningful adventure.
He promised himself that he would find his passion and he designed a project to take him closer.
Sean created the One Week Job project and then worked 52 jobs in 52 weeks.
He went all-in after his dreams and it paid off for him.
