“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” (Howard Thurman)

I must say this quote excites me every time I read it.

Doing things for the sake of what we think the world needs is, at best, misguided. But doing things because we love doing them has the potential to change both us and the world.
