Q: What Is Your Voice? A: What Is Your Passion?

Written by rsolberg on. Posted in All, Oped

At the time of writing this post, I’m 30 years old or 30 years young as some would say. Like many people, I’ve been trying to find my voice and identity in a world full of very smart and articulate people. It wasn’t until recently that I had a revelation about what that common trait was for many people whom seemingly have it all figured out. Passion.
pas·sion: A powerful emotion, such as love, joy, hatred, or anger. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/passion
In retrospect, it almost seems like this should have been common sense. But it wasn’t for me. I know growing up my father used to talk to me about passion and trying to find that one thing that you seem to love. In fact, I think the City Slicker’s movies starring Billy Crystal had a metaphor on passion for being that one important thing. I spent some time travelling from Portland, OR to Seattle, WA yesterday and it dawned on me… I’m not passionate about just one thing. I’m passionate about LOTS of things.
  • Family
    • Being a Father
    • Being a Husband
    • Being a Son
  • Technology
    • Software Development (C#, ASP.NET, MVC)
    • Mobile Computing
  • Business
  • Sports
    • Seahawks (12th Man)
    • Mariners (yes, still)
    • NASCAR (#88)
  • America/Politics
One of these days in the near future, I’ll be revamping this site a bit to focus more on the things I’m passionate about. In the meantime, find your own voice by identifying your passions. That’s a great place to start.
