This is what we all want people around us to say to us. “Great work!”
But how can we do great work if we don’t like our work much? That’s what Paul Graham writes about in a recent post of his. Great advice.
He says that it’s a bit of a hit or miss, finding your so-called passion in life. If you find it, then you are among the rarest of the rare.
But what if you don’t, or haven’t yet?
Mr. Graham’s advice? Keep trying. Keep increasing the surface area for luck to find you. Don’t just drift along and hope for a eureka moment. Take action! Success stories often involve serendipity: chance meetings or stumbling upon the right book. Luck is the secret ingredient. How do you attract luck? Be curious!
In his own words:
"Try lots of things, meet lots of people, read lots of books, ask lots of questions."
