So... I think I figured out the purpose of my blog. Three things that really interest me - the topic of life evolution (how one changes as they grow older and more mature), technology (particularly Semantic web and Service Oriented Architecture) and serial entrepreneurship. I'm going to try to direct my posts around these topics.
One of the ways I'd like to set the stage over the coming weeks is to chat a bit about two key tenets of the serial entrepreneur - "Passion" and "Sense of Urgency."
I'll start with some thoughts on "Passion" today.
Definitions of passion on the Web:
strong feeling or emotion
heat: intense passion or emotion
rage: something that is desired intensely
mania: an irrational but irresistible motive for a belief or action
It's an interesting word and topic in general. In talking to our Founder, Roman Stanek, the other night over a drink, he really sparked my imagination on this topic. He said - if one has passion for a given goal, no matter what that goal is, they will likely accomplish it. When I really thought about it, - it's extremely true... for some. If you want to succeed, you need to be passionate about your goals. We also talked about "passionate people." Passionate people are the ones who fill a conversation with a burst of new energy, they are motivated to wake up every day and put 200% into whatever they do, and they typically measure success in different ways - some monetary, some "life based," some "society based," and so on.
If you're not passionate about what you're doing, get off the dime and do something about it.
