Passions are what we say we live for. They can motivate us to go above and beyond the call of duty. Unfortunately, that’s exactly where they can go wrong. When our passion doesn’t line up with our current responsibility, that passion is misplaced. Great teammates get passionate about their current role and task. Always looking away to some other pet project will distract even the most talented teammate. The grass is always greener for some people. The most successful people are flexible about what they get passionate about. Therefore, they are much more likely to be passionately productive.
