Who says I cannot beat indexed funds? I make my investors happy and secure in retirement, whilst learning new things every day from all quarters of life. businesses and industries. I wake up to every new day looking forward to learning more, solving new puzzles, overcome chalkenges and getting paid for it. What could arouse more passion than this?Yes, with mediocres like you, a handgun would be handy- a mediocre way to end a mediocre existence.
Perhaps you have missed it. Passion is used in the context of an occupation, which involves provision of goods and services in exchange for value, not engaging in an activity to amuse oneself. But if you and others of similar vein wishes to spend your lives aiming for mediocrity, then be my guest. Just try not to infest young minds with your generalisations.
I am sorry, what does this mean? The statement appears to be contradictory.
Mate, once you go out on your own, there is no turning back. I know many in similar situations, and the unanimous feedback is that they wishedthey had done it earlier, even though some of them has had many failures in starting up on their own.

Finding what one is passionate about...
 I have observed this over 2 decades, and it appears that university students and stock market participants have a common behavioural problem. They all flock to the hot sector and then get burned. In the days of pre-2000 IT boom, students enrolled in IT en masse. We are still feeling the oversupply nearly 1 decade later. Then the hot sector became investment banking. After 2008, you know what happened. In recent years, mining engineers are du jour. The pain is now coming....
So true. I was once involved in a start-up company which helps graduates "polish up" and present themselves better to employers in the marketplace. We tried to engage both the universities and businesses. Businesses are wailing that universities produce graduates who are next to useless in a workplace, and our program would have saved them lots of time and money involved in just basic training of new graduate employees. However, the universities made it clear to us that...
An alternative view is that he decants directly into his gullet. Pretty efficient....
