"…But in terms of naming my 20 hobbies, there's so many things I enjoy. Just the generic things of being alive in a city that has mountains and ocean and art and diversity. I think La is really offers me so much.…"

"…I'm a professional boxing coach, but I teach a lot of boxing and I'm a trainer as well, personal trainer, which has led me to I'm passionate about performance, or overall performance, like humor performance, whether that's mental, emotional or physical. So I'm a performance coach, like a life coach, but a performance coach. I'm a trainer, a boxing trainer and a biomechanic specialist. And all of this and sports therapist.…"

"…But I think that is my goal for me personally and just hobbies wise, there are so many things I love doing that I think I would end up having like 20 hobbies. And I think that having the inspiration between the two into having something that requires so much effort and is your job versus something you truly only do for enjoyment that doesn't have to be completely successful or monetized I think is super important.…"

"…I mean, I think definitely from person to person, this answer could definitely change. But I think for me, I tend to have one passion. I think I can see how other people would really want to explore many different things. But for me, it's just like how my mind works is when I get into something, I'm into that, and I'm focused on that. And I see that from a lot of my friends, too, because I'm in the ultimate frisbee community.…"

"…And I think the answer lies in that saying, I myself have probably close to 20 hobbies, and I don't know that I'm a master at one, and I don't know what truly defines a master. How do you truly define that? I mean, I've played baseball. I've played football. I've played basketball. I've raced mountain bikes. I've skateboarded. I've skied. I've water skied. I fly fish. I fish off a boat.…"

"…I got some pretty creative ideas for some other ones I want to be doing. If you get a chance, check out my soul cast about my book, which is a work in progress. I got quite a few posts out there. Love to hear from you, feedback on those. That would be great. Until then, thanks again for replying, and you have a good day. Bye.…"

"…Yeah, that thing is what I would probably do now if we could do both. If they were not mutually exclusive, similar to what Deb said, I would say, why the h*** not? Everything having a passion is great, but what if I really enjoy playing soccer or rock climbing or reading meditating, writing, discoursing, debating, anything?…"

"…It's healthy to have those. But I think there has to be at least one passion for something. So I am looking forward to seeing where this goes so far. I've enjoyed listening to everyone's responses and look forward to some more. I'll hope you have a good day, man. Take care. Bye.…"

"…Hi, Eric. This is a super interesting post. I don't think I've ever really thought about it like that. Now that I do think about it, though, I think my gut answer is I would want to have, like, one passion.…"

"…Most of my hobbies involve creative expression in the visual arts, the performing arts, the domestic arts, and some of them I'm quite good at. The thing is, I wouldn't ever want to dedicate my life to a single form of creative expression, to throw all my energy and talent into one thing. I mean, there's one I've been working on for 30 years that I'm really good at, that I could compete nationally at.…"

"…This is definitely an interesting question, and I don't think there's one right answer for everyone, but I do personally think that maybe you can channel your passion into your job so that you're excited to go to work every day. Every day. Whereas you can have your hobbies on the side so you can keep things exciting and fun and be able to live a life outside of your job.…"

"…So I have kind of a rotation of things that have come in and out of my life in terms of hobbies and I've really always in the back of my mind wondered like, what if I was really into one of these things and have really focused all my time and energy? Would I be really good at one of those things? And would that be better? Would that have me in a better place in life than where I am?…"

"…I have a passion. I would rather have a passion than have 20 hobbies. And my passion is working with children. What I'm doing now, I've been doing it forever, so I enjoy what I do. So I think it's better to have a passion than have of hobbies. Hobbies. You can grow out over and not like them after a while. But passions will stay with you for forever.…"
