Writing your Passion List

The first part of The Passion Test is to make a list of your passions, i.e. those things which you love most, which are most important to you, which are most critical to your happiness and well-being. When your passions are clear, then you can create goals which are aligned with your passions and begin to create the life you choose to live.

Both passions and goals are valuable, and the first step is getting clear on your passions. Think about what you will do, be and have when your life is ideal.

There is no right or wrong way to write your list.  The purpose of the Test is to provide clarity.  Whatever way you write the items on your list, what’s important is that YOU know what the item means to you.  If you are unclear about what an item means, then reword it so it makes sense to you.

One guideline we suggest is to begin your items with a verb.  Living your passions is a process, not a destination, so your lists should reflect that reality.
