How Would You Title a Book about My Ideas on Passion?February 22nd, 2011 · 124 comments
Excuse the brief administrative post, but I wanted to take a moment to tap the voluminous collective intelligence of my readers…
Here’s my question:
- Let’s say I wanted to write a book about my unconventional ideas on passion, including, for example, why “follow your passion” is bad advice, and the type of strategies that actually work. What would you title this book?
Here are the constraints for the title:
- It needs to be positive: i.e., give the reader a sense of how his or her life would be improved. (In other words, you couldn’t call it “Don’t Follow Your Passion,” as that’s only negative.)
- It would need to be compelling and make it clear my thoughts are different.
Please share any ideas you have in the comments of this post. I look forward to your thoughts.
