Purpose and passion are two qualities that, when working in tandem, can make a world of difference for every business and every executive. Purpose gives us the structure and logic, and passion gives us the drive to be innovative and creative. We are the most productive and motivated when we know how and why we’re doing the work plus we feel really great about doing it.
When purpose and passion are at odds with each other, however, our work is likely to slow down and may even come to a grinding halt. How well will we get the job done if we know what to do, but we don’t really care? What kind of results will we achieve if we’re excited about ideas, but we have no meaningful goal or action plan?
