I often wonder how many people actually find a satisfying niche in life. Something that becomes an inherit part of their identity and they never tire of it. Artists and musicians, scientists, mathematicians, mechanics, etc. often seemed to achieve this but for the majority of us it seems we just sort of amble through life getting satisfaction where we can often switching jobs or hobbies often as the passion leaves us.
The usual route for me is that I am coincidentally exposed to something that catches my interest and I follow up on it. The initial exposure usually involves a positive experience very often a positive social experience but not necessarily. Something I have pondered for years with no real conclusion is would it be possible to develop programs that were basically tailored to expose people to more possibilities in a positive environment? I find you tube videos kind of have this effect on me where something will catch my interest but the sheer volume and high levels of achievement usually cause me to loose interest rather quickly.
Has anyone else ever thought of things related to this?
