Rule #1: Don't follow your passion Rule #2: Be so good they can't ignore you (Or, the importance of skill) Rule #3: Turn down a promotion (Or, the importance of control) Rule #4: Think small, act big (Or, the importance of mission).
Newport debunks the idea that "follow your passion" is good advice, because passions have little to do with how people end up loving their work. After spending time with organic farmers, venture capitalists, screenwriters, computer programmers, and others who admitted to deriving satisfaction from their work, Newport uncovers the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided in developing their careers.
