Scott Adams: Goals are for Losers. Passion is Overrated

Goals are for Losers. Passion is Overrated.

Scott Adams 

Goals are for losers. In a complex world, systems are better. Systems are something you do on a regular basis to increase your odds of success, and make yourself more valuable,without a specific goal.
Passion is overrated. It doesn’t predict success; it usually follows success. Success causes passion more than passion causes success. Successful people tell you passion was the key because any other answer makes them sound like jerks. (You can’t say you’re smarter than poor people, for example, even if you believe it.)
