You can be competent without being passionate.

And vice versa. Case in point: my golf game. I'm very passionate about it, doesn't make me competent.

So true! I'd like to note here that some of the best developpers I've met in my carreer are dads with other preocupation than maximizing their entreprise's wealth. What they lacked in passion they made up for in diligence and patience, which are qualities that I admire.
