Aptitude vs. Passion

Many people choose their career based on their aptitude in school. For example, if you get good grades in a particular subject, you might consider a career related to that subject. Aptitude is defined as “A natural ability to do something”.

If you want to get your dream job, you have to figure out what you are naturally good at, and what you love to do, and find a way to combine them. In other words, you have to combine your aptitude with your passion. Most people consider aptitude when choosing their career, but they usually don’t consider their passion, or what they love to do.

People who choose their career based only on aptitude may have a great and successful career. But they may be lacking the satisfaction that comes from doing what you love.

Regardless of pay, your dream job may be more satisfying, because you are doing both – what you are naturally good at, and what you love to do.
