rosie’s super awesome 73 questions to uncover your passion

Something I’ve learned recently is people sure do have a hard time finding stuff they’re passionate about!  I’ve nearly asked everyone I’ve spoken to recently (actual face to face talking) what goals, if any, they have.   They all had a very, very hard time answering.  “What do you want out of life?”  Big Pause.  “What are some things you’d like to do in your life?”  I might have gotten about two answers tops from each person.   Sadly, it’s easier for people to answer the questions:  “What don’t you want out of life?” and “What don’t you want to do?”  (eg. “I don’t want to be overweight”)

So to help think about this, here are Rosie’s Super Awesome 73 Questions to Uncover Your Passion!  ***This is not a questionnaire*** Read it fast or read it slow, but I hope at least 3 questions jump out at you:
