What Do I Really Burn For?

Updated: Jan 10

There are lots of things. I fancy this, that, and I enjoy so many other things. The list of hobbies is infinite. But wait…. What am I passionate about, what do I really burn for?


I don't know. Do you?


I am an advocate of the practical learning approach. I prefer learning by doing rather than sticking my nose into tons of books. Nevertheless, I went to university and received a degree.


But it was outside the classroom, where I learnt the most valuable lessons. Teamwork, communication and presentation skills just being a few of them.


Living and studying abroad, experiencing various cultures, problem-solving and learning languages while being exposed to an immersive load of creative input was the greatest school of all.


It made me wonder. Have I found my passion?


And how can I use this in a professional way?


Because I truly love writing and marketing, I took the first opportunity that presented itself during a late night study session on my Facebook feed. If you are curious, what exactly had happened, you can check out this article I wrote (sorry, only in German!).


I realised the importance of a good work-life balance and having flexibility. I assume it to be of greater value than the pressure for earning money fast in a conventional career and living in one place.


Hence, I am working now as a freelancer from my laptop, location independent and often travelling. This is the right thing for me now.


I am happy with what I do. And I am happy with who I am.


I hope this blog, with its short personal stories, encourages you to also listen to your heart, follow your dreams, be less scared and find your passion.


Go out and find something you really burn for!
