“If I were giving a motivational speech, I’d say that, if you want to be successful and make a real contribution to the world, you have to be intrinsically motivated by the work you do, and you have to feel good about spending your days on it. Love might grow–and it’s a wonderful thing if it does–but you don’t need it up front. You can succeed just by wanting something to exist that doesn’t already.” — Jason Fried*
Let’s look at this again: “You can succeed just by wanting something to exist that doesn’t already.”
That’s it. Just want it enough and the path of how-to opens with each and every single step you take closer toward that something.
One step. And then another.
You’ve got this.
