The Purple Cow

What’s common between Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates?

You might say that they were all college drop-outs. Or that they all became CEOs. Or that they had big dreams. But there’s a much bigger similarity among all of them.

They were not just DREAMERS, but DOERS too.

They believed in action and thus lived their dreams.

Yet most of us are forever busy waiting for the right time to do something.

I’ll tell you what, the right time is a myth.  Only passion is real.

Passion is what separates winners   from whiners.

Find something that you really really love to do.  It could be creating a new app, building a website, writing  a blog, making 3D car simulations, hardwiring robots, designing a new wheelchair, public speaking, photography, film-making,  founding an NGO or even starting a business.

And follow that dream passionately.

Don’t do it for the sake of a good reputation or good money, because chances are you will surely lose out if you start in that direction.

Instead, do it just for the love of doing it. Do it because it brings you joy. Do it because it makes you better than what you were yesterday. Do it because it will one day help you make a difference in your life and in the lives of millions.

There’s an old saying hanging in my work desk, “The greatest thing about the greatest thing in life is actually doing it”.

The best time to start something was yesterday.

The second best time is today.  Go do it!
