Ever wanted to know about your passion quotient (PQ)?
Well if not, go for it as even as 20 per cent increase in PQ can act like virtual energy and work wonders for corporates, students and professionals alike.

Passion generates creativity and creativity needs passion. Passion can fire up that creative genius which all of us to some degree possess.
People like A R Rahman, Shah Rukh Khan, Narayana Murthy, Elvis Presley and Muhammad Ali -- are the ones who got involved in their work because they liked their work. This is the mantra to their success.
Passion is a very strong expression. It resides in your heart and in the pit of your stomach, maybe in the rest of your vibrant body -- but certainly not in your head. And many a times it doesn't see reason.
It is an emotion and therefore, is part of emotional competence. Human emotions unfortunately cannot be singled out or compartmentalised as they are interlinked. At best you can make clusters of closly related emotions. It finds its direct connectivity with enthusiasm, excitement, drive, arousal, grit, motivation and even obsession to name a few.
