I love this question!  My take... Passion: What you do because you care so deeply about it you MUST do it... Even if you're not getting paid to do it.  Passion is one of the 3 Elements of Your Ideal Career.  When I work with people on designing that ideal, I ask them to consider this: You've won the lottery.  I mean The Big Kahuna, Never-Have-To-Work-Again Jackpot.  Now that your financial security is no longer an issue, what will you do anyway?  Me?  I'd still guide people to find their natural strengths and unique instincts and put them to work in a way that is fulfilling and meaningful for them.  I can't NOT do this work!  It's not just a passion... It's my mission.

Your passions should be something you would work at for many years, or even your lifetime. Your interests may just be a fling or something you wouldn't mind doing; at least on the scale of biz.

Passion is craziness and interest is something you like doing but not all the time.

For me a passion: Is something you just can keep talking about, it won't bore you.
An interest: It's just something you like doing...but you could live without.

A good thing you could do for finding you passion, ask your close friends, wife, husband, family...the three things that they think you're passionate about. Could work as an eye opener.

Meredith and Jason. Thanks for answering my question and adding your insight.
Based upon your posts, I probably have to admit, that I have not yet discovered my "passion."  I have many interests but none which I feel I "must" do (except regluarly stick to my exercise regimen and eat well which I do simply for good health).

Is there an exercise or process to help recognize a passion, or develp one?

Thanks for your time,

Statton
