Your Productive Passion

As I mentioned last week, The High Calling is taking a look at Todd Henry’s book Die Empty. This week, Glynn Young wrote about finding your “productive passion”:

Once you know or understand what your passion is—what Todd Henry in Die Empty: Unleash Your Best Work Every Day calls your “productive passion”—much becomes clear.

Instead, productive passion not only motivates you but also helps others.

Defining your productive passion is one of the steps toward understanding and achieving the act of “dying empty.” Dying empty isn’t about working yourself to death to show or prove what you’ve done. It is finishing each day, and eventually your life, having accomplished what is important and meaningful—especially in the service of others.
