"What do you want to be when you grow up?" a question that immediately gives us pressure. The thing is you can't find your passion when you're under pressure. My advice? Forget about that question and the need to find out the exact thing you want to be when you grow up. Do what makes you happy in the NOW. Try things you never considered, and those you've always been curious about. Explore. Change your mind as many times as needed. Everything you try will teach you a lesson, every lesson will build the person you'll be when you grow up. I may not hold a position as a graphic designer, an art director or a brand strategist now, but the skills I learned along the way are what make my youtube videos and my presentations stand out. I'm glad I didn't know I was going to become what I am today, otherwise, I wouldn't have all these skills that set me apart from the rest.

Think about one activity that you've never tried before and give it a shot this week. It could be something you always wanted to do but never did, or something you never thought about! This must be something that has the potential to turn into a career or a hobby (piano lessons, photography, video making, yoga, cooking, design, etc!).
