How to find out what you love doing

Every time you have done something and you have enjoyed doing it, take a paper and note it down. For example, you were watching the sunset and enjoyed watching it. Then you can write it down: “Watching sunset”
Just keep on writing until you have 20 to 30 things on the list.

Reading news
Riding motorcycle
Talking to friends
Drinking coffee
Swimming upside down
Water cloloring

So once you have 20 to 30 items then look into different jobs that require you to do those things.

Reading news + traveling = News reporter
Talking with friends + drinking coffee = Marketing
Water coloring = Interior designing
Traveling = Marketing, Pilot, air hostesses
Eating = chef, restaurant management
Eating + Traveling = Hospitality
Fishing = fisherman
Riding motorcycle = delivery boy

You cannot come up with this kind of list in one day. So keep a log or a note app. Update it every time if you have done a satisfying work. It may take several months or even several years.

If you are doing what you love doing. If you are passionate about what you do, then you will enjoy every minute you spend with your work.

Note: Like most of the articles I wrote, this one was also written for myself. I prefer using ‘You’ instead of ‘I’ to refer to myself.
