1/18/12 – What big problems are you trying to solve?


“We don’t find happiness by looking within. We go outside and immerse in the world. We are called to a higher purpose by the inescapable circumstances that are laid out on our path. It’s our daily struggles that define us and bring out the best in us, and this lays down the foundation to continuously find fulfillment in what we do even when times get tough.

Happiness comes from the intersection of what you love, what you’re good at, and what the world needs. We’ve been told time and again to keep finding the first. Our schools helped developed the second. It’s time we put more thought on the third.

What big problems are you trying to solve?” – Oliver Segovia

A friend of mine sent me a link this morning to an AMAZING article, part of which is quoted above. I don’t know what else to say about it, other than I believe in it 150% and it has made me think more about the topic than I already do on a weekly basis. It gets to the roots of why I want to move back abroad and do something I am passionate about that will really make a difference in this world.

Click the link below (and by link I mean the picture), PLEASE! Read the article, maybe even two or three times. Really digest what it is saying and think to yourself, “What big problems am I trying to solve? If I’m not, what big problems would I like to try and solve and how am I going about doing this?”
