Discover what stage you are in and understand how to develop it. 1 Discovery: Play! - You don’t have a specific goal in mind - You get praised for it but maybe you don’t like it so much yet - Your interest needs external activation 2 Development: Practice! - Invest time - The activity itself is motivating - Your interest needs dedication 3 Deepening: Interest has turned into passion - Your interest needs inspiration - Add a unique flavour or repertoire YOU ARE IN DISCOVER WHAT STAGE
