This week I head back to school for the first time in a couple years. While it certainly will be an adjustment from sitting in a cubicle to sitting in a classroom, the idea of learning something new and engaging with a different idea will be a seamless transition.
Passion energizes talent. Find something you like to do so much you’d gladly do it for nothing. If you do learn to do it well, someday people will be happy to pay you for it. Prioritize your life accordingly to your passion with the aim to develop the talent you have, not the one you want. Remember that it’s better to live with the pain of risk than the pain of regret.
