I saw this video here and I thought I’d share my point of view on the subject. This advice comes from a guy who belongs to a different generation and to a certain degree he has a point, his arguments make sense BUT.
In my opinion following your dreams is still a must because it might be the only way to figure out that your passion and your skills don’t match. One of the ways of finding out what you are not good at is to try out that specific activity and seeing the results.
The video applies to everything in life even to photography. If you’re passionate about photography it doesn’t mean you’re going to be a good photographer. The world doesn’t need for more professional photographers anyway.
What do you think? Is your passion perfectly aligned with your skills?
