But passion requires real learning. Nobody is passionate about skiing on their first day. Nobody is passionate about programming in Java on their first day. Or week. It’s virtually impossible to become passionate about something until you’re somewhere up the skill/knowledge curve, where there are challenges that you believe are worth it, and that you perceive you can do.
Nobody becomes passionate until they’ve reached the stage where they want to grow in a way they deem meaningful.Kathy Sierra, from You can out-spend or out-teach
