The Delusion of Passion is timely for the next century and the new world economy. Finding your passion is only a piece of the success puzzle. A must read for any Millennial struggling to channel their passion and for non-Millennials seeking to inspire the next generation.

This is a remarkable book, not only written skillfully but with a rare mix of humor and practical wisdom from key figures of all generations. I love the way the authors so eloquently weave in not only the passion and pain of life's lessons but share the realism of change and our attempt to change with the times or be left behind. It's a true recipe for success and a deeper look at the terms distraction versus uninspired.

The Delusion of Passion is a masterpiece for the next generation of diverse professionals and entrepreneurs. David and Mark use their experiences to encapsulate the heart of the Millennial Mind for all to understand. Every business and non-profit leader should pass this resource along to their teams.

We want life to be awesome.
We're not afraid to work hard for something we're passionate about...but how do we find those things? What does it look like when we do find our way? Will we know it? What if we commit to the wrong things? What if we never find our true calling in life?
Life is supposed to be this amazing ride, right? We feel like that sometimes, but we don't feel like we're tapping into our inner greatness.
We want to learn, but everyone who gives us "advice" just seems to be lecturing, condescending, or only interested in turning us into them...
The Millennial Struggle & Struggling with Millennials
Working with Millennials:
They seem to be wired differently.
They are to be motivated by different things, work in a different way, and see the world and others with a different perspective.
At times, they are inspiring...most of the time they are infuriating.
They seem to have all this great potential, but seem uninterested, disconnected, and/or apathetic. Maybe this new generation is just too soft...
All I really know is that what we've been doing up to this point, hasn't been working.
