The other problem with finding a passion and locking it into permanency, is you don't know how long you're going to be able to do it. Not that you have to hedge your bets on everything you do, but talents and skills might fade or become impossible to do (mostly to do with our failing bodies as we age).quote]
Nothing is permanant. You could have the best job in the world, have focused all your attention on a single issue all your adult life, then one day - you drop down dead - quickly, painlessly, but never the less, dead. We hear about it all the time, people who have sudden heart attacks, brain tumours, aneurisms. ( I personally know people who have died suddenly from these). Of course some talents fade, how do you think top athletes feel when it's all over for them? They end up selling undies or perfume! Female actors get less work as their 'beauty' fades, people have serious, body traumatising accidents and can never do their chosen work again, so why should we scanners worry about things fading, we're lucky, we can go in multiple directions. As for passion -it could be said to be over rated, passion is generally brief, explosive, all consuming, exciting and thrilling; commitment is for permanancy, love is for permanancy, application and consistency can be permanant.
