Passion Mind Map

Along with a gazillion other people, I've been reading The Purpose Driven. I couldn't finish it for personal reasons. But his premise is that without a well-defined purpose, life is meaningless and needlessly difficult. He urges his readers to discover their passion and develop a community to help feed keep passion alive.

Warren's book is too Christian for this Unitarian, but I could appreciate it's initial thesis, that passion demands spirit, and spirit feeds passion.

Our tagline at Cambium Creative is "Spirit. Imagination. Growth." We could just as well have separated the words with arrows instead of periods, because that's the process. One of the best things about having your own company is the ability to create a culture that celebrates passion, creativity and integrity.

A couple of days ago, I wrote about mind mapping as a freeform tool that gets your thinking out of your head and onto paper. Since I've been reading so much about passion, I mapped out my thinking as posted below.
