Make a second list

Your first list is good. It highlights your interests and passions. This will help you identify things that present interesting opportunities. It can be useful for connecting the dots. 

But your second list is much more valuable. It's a list of the reasons WHY you love those things on the first list. What is it about those things that make you feel so passionately about them? Is it because you are helping people? Is it because you get to work with your hands? Is it because you get to visit new places? Be specific. 

People too often stop after the first list, the initial question, the original answer. Dig deeper. Find out why. Describe what that looks like.
