#MyFavorites: Adam Grant's podcast WorkLife with TED on "how to make work not suck"

"When a graduation speaker says 'follow your passion', I find myself wondering, is it actually good advice?" (Adam Grant)

In this podcast episode organizational psychologist Adam Grant elaborates on the pros and cons of following a career passion. It is inspiring, funny, it encourages to test-and-learn and follow your very individual career path.

"The problem is that the advice to 'follow your passion' reflects a fixed mind-set. It assumes your interests are stable. So if you don't immediately enjoy a field or a task, the writing is on the wall: this must not be your passion. But that's a mistake ... because passion can grow over time." (Adam Grant in WorkLife)
