"Telling someone to 'Follow their passion' can actually get in the way of their goal to end up passionate about what they do ." - Cal Newport
Cal is a student of success.
While in college, Cal wrote his first book, How To Win At College. It was published by Random House.
For his 4th and latest book, So Good They Can't Ignore You, Cal sets his sights on the working world and claims that the idea of "following your passion" is bad advice.
Meanwhile Cal works full-time as an assistant professor of computer science at Georgetown.
On this Skype interview you'll hear Cal discuss how he broke in the writing world, the problem with the passion mindset, and just because you don't love every single minute of what you're doing that doesn't mean you should give up on it.
