Life is Too Short to Fake Passion.

When I’m interviewing someone, I’m looking for passion. To me, a passionate but average candidate is better than a rock star with no passion. Nothing great has ever achieved without passion, without enthusiasm. And you can’t fake passion. Even if you can fake it, it won’t last long. I interviewed someone today, and my advice to the person was “Find something else that you’re passionate about. Do what you love. Your time is limited.”

Life is too short to fake passion.

I can tell from the way people sharing their design works, how passionate they are with design. Telling “My passion is in design” means nothing if you can’t show it passionately. If you love it, passion would follow. If you’re not passionate about it, most probably it’s not something that you love. Do something else that you love. Life is too short to fake passion.
