Live With Purpose, Not Passion

“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

It’s not that living without passion is desirable or encouraged, but you cannot live a meaningful life without purpose. Dr. Andrew Thorn writes about this in Chapter 7 of his latest book, Leading With Your Legacy in Mind. If you were to follow only your passions, you would be an erratic and irrational mess. Purpose focuses your work and builds passion.
