The other day I was having lunch with Mike Bell, the man who hired me for an engineering co-op job during university – an opportunity that changed my life. He has also changed the lives of over 250,000 students who have been educated with his math instruction methods.
During our time together, he gave me his definition of passion. He said:
“When I see the word ‘passion,’ I actually see three words. In the middle is ‘I’ and on either side are “pass” and “on.” To me, passion is when ‘I pass on’ something I love to others. It’s when I make a contribution to the world.”
Works for me.
