The 9 Ps – Part 9: Passion

Steve Jobs once said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” In other words, follow your passion.

The 9 Ps – Part 8: Prudence

Enthusiasm is important, but passion should be tempered with prudence in the form of research, organization, and preparation.

The 9 Ps – Part 7: Perseverance
