Once in a while you come across a concept that really changes the way you think and approach things.  This is true of Cal Newport’s book, So Good They Can't Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love.
 
Basic concept: Passion follows mastery. 
 
Coaches love things like “passion.”  Maybe too much.  We’re not saying passion doesn’t matter; we’re just saying that sitting around waiting for passion is a poor strategy.  Try things and see what stirs your interest. Let the interest develop into skill, and then mastery will unlock passion.  
 
Usefulness in coaching:
·      When a client is trying to “discover” passion.
·      Career coaching.
·      When faced with a challenge that’s a bit too much, passion is lacking.

Setting the context is a skill that good communicators master. When the context is not set, the listener is wondering, "what are we talking about?" It is as if the listener wandered into the conversation halfway through.

A good communicator starts with the context so that the listener can enter the conversation immediately.

In this podcast, Brian asks Chad how he is so good at setting context.
