Passion and the willingness to suffer
Completely overrated or an essential prerequisite for excellent results? Mediocrity rules! Subjective perception or fact? And if mediocrity actually rules, why? Incompetence? Is there a lack of appreciation? Recognition? Appropriate goals? Or is the problem simply a lack of willingness to suffer, a lack of willingness to dedicate oneself passionately to a cause? Even if – and especially when – it becomes arduous? Bettina Otto, the creative director at BLAUEPFERDE and a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, will take up this theme in her Interactive Impulse presentation. Using her own biography as an example, she demonstrates impressively how passion makes itself known, what it can achieve and what the causal relationship is between the willingness to commit yourself passionately to a goal and achieving success. So why is it still worth it to push yourself to your limits?
