Diving head first into the start up world
Someone once told me that I can do anything, just not everything.
It really is true, and unfortunately one of my strengths is my ability think about something from a lot of different perspectives; to really listen and understand people around me, and see things from their viewpoint. I get interested and passionate about what they are interested and passionate in and work that into my life. This gives me interest overload.
At some point I’m going to die.
With all of these interests floating around in my brain, it makes me sad that I only have a little bit of time on this earth to do something valuable, or even experience things. Because of this my brain is constantly in “dramatic mode” thinking along these lines:
“Is what I am doing right now going to make me, the people around me, and the world a better place? Because, come on man, you’re gonna be an old man soon. What are you doing with your life?!”
This creates two things in me; a bunch of drive to live life and minimize drama because, hey! I’ll be dead at some point anyways right? Why waste my time with that! Unfortunatly, this also can stress me out. It makes me think about the fact that life is ticking away every moment and that I better not just throw the time away.
I want to change the world.
I am wired to be sold out on something so big that I will never be able to do it alone. But together, with fantastic people, we can forever change the world and make it a better place for everyone! Corny, I know, but it fills my heart and when I’m filled up with passion I ooze it out all over everyone around me (gross). It’s contagious, people can feel it, they want more, and at the end of my life I want to look back and be able to say I was a part of something amazing. This makes me never really satified with anything I do. It keeps a growing hunger in me to do more, to be more, to make more. And I don’t know where I can really “change the world” yet, so I’m still looking.
