Larry Smith: Why you will fail to have a great career

Larry Smith is a University of Waterloo Professor of Economics who is said to be frustrated by the waste of talent that he sees. (As am I.) In this video he caricatures many of the excuses he has heard for failing to find and identify a life's passion.

The only refinement I would presume to add is that it's important to look for a market niche for one's passion and to be sure that the passion somehow exploits one's strengths.

Please enjoy.
