I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from Apple.  It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it.  Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick.  Don’t lose faith.  I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.  You’ve got to find what you love.  And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers.  Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.  And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.  If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.  As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.  So keep looking until you find it.  Don’t settle.

One of my friends (real close friend, FB friend and patient) Dr. Zuraidi Ishak (Ph.D. doctor) wrote, “Why, when we lined up at the post office, or at any place, another line must be fast moving faster? Why?”

(Dear friend Dr. Zuraidi Ishak, kindly allow me to write a blog posting based on your FB, QUEUE or passively wait in line?)

A queue in front of a shop – a common sight in the People’s Republic of Poland during the 1980s.
