Find Your Fuel and Burn It Wisely

Find your Fuel

Find the fuel that works for you

One thing I’ve found hard in life has been finding that single thing which powered me in my all of my pursuits. I am referring to that passion — that love for what we do, and the reason behind it all.  To understand it, you must find your fuel.

After years of operating technology , web development shops, and working for corporations, I have found that it can all be boiled down to “creating stuff other people use”. Over the span of the last 10 years I’ve been unconsciously creating systems, designing, servicing,  and feeling great when others enjoy my work. It is that satisfaction that makes me move forward. There are thousands of ways to make stuff others can benefit from or use. It can be anything. The key is to find what makes you feel good about making others feel good. It may take some time, but you will find your fuel.

Jeff Bezos once said:

I imagined himself as an very old person, then thought about how it will feel if I didn’t execute his dream (his idea), would I regret it when I have years to live…….

So, what is your FUEL?

What makes you feel good?

If you could do one more thing in life, what would it be?
