I stumbled upon this brilliant article, written by Kevin Kelly, on WordPress recently:
Take five minutes this morning to read the full article – I promise you’ll find one thing that you needed to hear today.
If you don’t have five minutes, have some of my favourites:
“If you desperately need a job, you are just another problem for a boss; if you can solve many of the problems the boss has right now, you are hired. To be hired, think like your boss.”
“A worthy goal for a year is to learn enough about a subject so that you can’t believe how ignorant you were a year earlier.”
“Rule of 3 in conversation. To get to the real reason, ask a person to go deeper than what they just said. Then again, and once more. The third time’s answer is close to the truth.”
“If you are not falling down occasionally, you are just coasting.”
“Following your bliss is a recipe for paralysis if you don’t know what you are passionate about. A better motto for most youth is “master something, anything”. Through mastery of one thing, you can drift towards extensions of that mastery that bring you more joy, and eventually discover where your bliss is.”
