Solving the “Follow your passion” equation

I’ve not solved my own but I think I’m close to solving it!

Recently I’ve seen a few blogs that go the opposite direction from the “Follow your passion” mantra. They claim it’s terrible advice.

Here’s an example. And this one. These stories have valid points. The first one suggests that “passion is grown, not found”. The second one talks about the risk of putting too many eggs in one basket, of setting the expectations too high, and then giving up too quickly when they are not met.
