Follow your dream. Whatever that means.

I get annoyed when people tell me to follow my dream.

Like, what the hell is that supposed to mean?

Obviously if I had a strong desire to become an astronaut, or a rockstar, or both I might find this advice helpful. Trust me, I’d be the first one to sign up to give up everything, throw myself behind a goal, spend all my time doing something that I care about above all else.

But the truth is often less romantic than Ted Talks make it out to be. 

How are you supposed to know what your dream is?  Interests? Yes. Interests? For sure. But a dream? A passion?  How do you get one of those? How do you know?

Non-rhetorical question.
