yesterday i saw a 3 minute video about being successful on TED.com (too lazy to find out the exact link and post it here).. in short, a person is not financially successful just because hes smart or hard working.. its because hes “passionate“.. he/she ( to be diplomatic gender wise!! 😉 ) is passionate about something that is considered valuable by people and delivers it right… so what?? well i tried to find out something that i was passionate about… its been since 30 hours since ive watched the video and i still havent found out..
i do IT.. but am i passionate about it? i dont think so.. i like it, but not so passionate enough to spend $2000 for some training on a new technology.. new technologies come out so often and before u know it i wud be broke if i started going for all of em.. but do i make an attempt in understanding it through personal research?? yes.. so am i passionate?? no!! wats the point of this exercise?? i dunno!
have u seen david blaine doing his escapade? him cruched up and bound with heavy chains and locks that make it so difficult to breathe?? and then magically he comes out of it?? well, i kinda feel like that now.. blaine bound but bithout bthe bmagic bskills.. dont live alone. with my uncle… dont have a car.. ride with uncle.. work + commute ~ 12 hours…. weather? cold to do anything!! bored? heck yeah!!
