So They Can’t Ignore You: Audiobook
Read by Dave Mallow
The So they can’t Ignore You audiobook written by Cal Newport will give you a new view with regards to passion. Experts would usually advice young people to follow their passion, but according to Newport, following this outdated advice would usually lead people towards their dead end, at least in the case of their careers.
There is no such thing as passion. If you are one of the few people who rely on your artistic ability to make a living, you may find this a bit offensive. But don’t misunderstand this book because it simply implies that there is no way for someone to pursue a passion if he does not have it yet.
Many people believe that the moment you graduate from college, you already have a decent idea of what your dream job is like, and what you passion is. But according to Newport, the only way for you to find out what your passion is, you need to exert a lot of effort and sacrifices for a particular before you can figure it out.
You can sort of relate to this to relationships. You can’t say that you are in love with someone unless you have actually put enough effort in relationships. The same case goes with career. The only way for you to tell what career path you are passionate with is the moment you actually get into the specific field. Once you exerted enough time and sweat in your job, that is the time when you feel the satisfaction of accomplishing something in that specific career path.
With that, Newport’s point here is that when choosing a career path, passion does not really have anything to do with it. This is because the feeling of having passion for something comes when you are already immersed in a specific job.
This audiobook is important because looking for your purpose in life is necessary if you want to attain happiness. There are lots of people in life who feels that they need to this and that because it is the one thing they are passionate about.
This book aims to put people in the right direction instead of wandering off the planet, not knowing what they are supposed to do with their lives.
