Love it, or just good at it?

Sometimes we’re good at things that we don’t actually love doing. As you progress through high school, how can you tell if you really love an activity, class, project, etc., as opposed to just being good at it? Here are three questions to consider:

  • Do you look forward to it, or try to put it off?
  • When you’re doing it, does the time fly by, or seem to slow down?
  • When you’re done, do you want to do it again, or would you be fine leaving it behind?

The more time you spend doing and learning things that elicit positive responses to those three questions, the happier and more successful you’re likely to be.
