Follow your passion full-time, or after hours.

As someone who has recently been thinking about very much about the kind of life I want to lead, and how a full-time job will fit within the scope of everything, I must say that this talk was one of the things I needed to hear.  I ask you to please ignore any language that may not be of your taste, and rather focus your attention to what matters, the message.

If you have a dream, find a way to pursue it.  Otherwise, you will always wonder what could have been.  I don’t want to be 75 years old and still thinking, how would my life be if I have had the courage to do X or Y.  As such, I will find a way to do what I want to do.  I will not, however, do so without taking into account that I am part of a society, and I have to be productive.  I won’t refuse to work a 9 to 5 job if I need an income, but will not be stuck with it for the rest of my life if it doesn’t go along with my life plans.  Do what you have to do, but never quit on your true goals.
