In this nice compilation Maria discusses How to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love. I am never tired of reading this and every time I read it, it triggers a different set of thoughts.

I think you have a gut feel for what you like. You may have it early in life or you may discover it, as you progress through life. What you would like to like may be dictated by factors other than yourself.
What about you? If you sit back and think about it a bit, do you see the difference in your case?
