How do we define passion?  Can one answer the question  “why”?
What is the difference between a passion, a dream, and a vision?

In business contexts, many companies make a considerable effort to put forward a big vision for the company to rally the company around, and provide a sense of purpose. How is that really helping with building individual motivation and passion?

Here their own thoughts about what Passion and some of the other concepts mean for them.
