Some of us are lucky. We have found the thing we love and are doing that thing every single day with every available once of energy, talent and focus.
Some of us are still searching. We are looking for that thing that ignites our passion and sets our mind on fire with the urge to create, build and improve.
For some of us, that thing is our work. For others, that thing sits outside our work. In either case, it is desperately important that we find that thing, pursue it and give over everything we have got.
I get frustrated. I get stuck. And then I see people like Ian Ruhter, fully invested and actively engaged with his gift to the world:
“If you had been searching your whole life for something you love, what would you be willing to sacrifice?” — Ian Ruhter
