The intersection of interest, skills, and opportunity.

As a young creative who is semi-obsessed with finding a way to simultaneously make a living and a difference, I very much appreciated the article “Finding Your Work Sweet Spot: Genuine Interest, Skills & Opportunity” by Scott Belsky. And if you ever crave some practical advice about pursuing work that you care about, I highly recommend that you read it as well.

From the article:

“Contemplate the three circles of the Venn diagram above  –  one circle encompasses your genuine interests; one, your skills; and one, the stream of opportunities available to you. An intersection between just two of the circles doesn’t cut it. A love for basketball and a connection to an NBA scout won’t help you if you lack the skills to play ball. You need to find YOUR trifecta.”

March 20’s daily design idea is what’s your work sweet spot?
