We have lots of different things to use to help keep us going. Everyone has a different “drug of choice", of course I mean legal drugs of course. For many it’s coffee. But there is something deeper going on. This fuel is a way to power through the long nights, the frustrations and challenges of a difficult task.
But these are temporary fuels. They might help for a night or for a specific deadline but they aren’t what you need for the long haul. You need something more. You need something substantial. You need a cause. You need passion. You need a purpose.
Find a cause you believe in. Find something that resonates with you. This is the fuel you need to be successful longterm. Be driven by more than some temporary fix. Be passionate about what you do. Find your purpose.
