You've got to find what you love

Me estaba planteando que llevo demasiadas madrugadas seguidas en la oficina (me costaría contarlas en este momento) cuando he vuelto a leer un artículo que enlacé hace unos días en El Mundo Real de los Negocios. Corto y pego los mejores trozos: hay gente excepcional que tiene el talento de motivar a cualquiera y tengo el privilegio de trabajar con muchos de ellos

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important

(...) Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary
