Follow your heart

Do not worry if it does not make sense

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Steve Jobs

This is a very important quote.

We tend to forget that all the things that feel so logical and understandable from today’s perspective weren’t all that self-evident back when decisions had to be made.

In the chaos of everyday life you have to make a lot of decisions without knowing enough about the big picture to make the best decision as of right now. But still, you have to make those decisions and even not making them is basically a decision, although most likely not a good one.

Instead of overanalyzing or being paralized by fear of doing wrong, just trust yourself, trust your feelings and ideas and most importantly: Trust that it will work out in the end. After all, it has worked out until know, has it not?

Intrinsic motivation

If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.
