This Is How You Pursue Your Passion Without Quitting Your Job

By Stephanie Shi

Does pursuing your passion seem impossible with your hectic day job? Experts believe it’s doable if you stick to these simple steps. (Note: They are easier said than done, but they CAN BE DONE!)

Know your passion project.
What is it that you want to do? Is it to start a company? What will the company do? How will people know about it? Knowing what you want is the first step, and it will be your inspiration to keep going.

Set goals.
Ask yourself: “What do I want to achieve?” Be specific. Create step-by-step goals and then a timeline or a schedule. Sounds daunting? Remember you need deadlines to make sure you get things done. The time you set apart for your project is very crucial; it shows how much you want it.

Save money.
You have to have a plan on how you’ll raise the money for your project. (You can ask some help from family and friends.) Make sure you have an estimate of how much you intend to gain periodically.

Check your routine/schedule.
You need to do this when you’re not meeting your deadlines and goals at all. Evaluate what you can give up: movie nights? Waking up at 8 in the morning? Siesta on the weekends? If you can’t give up anything, see what things you can work around on.
