Directed Intent

“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.”

Steve Jobs

Work is how we make our dreams happen. But not all work is equal.

We can do a whole lotta work for the wrong reasons, and still end up where we started or worse. We can also do a lot of work for the right reason, but for the wrong people.

There’s nothing wrong with giving your time and energy to helping others and making their dreams happen, if they are willing to do the same thing for you.

Work can also be unequal when we are working in circles. the wheels are spinning but the car isn’t going anywhere. There’s effort, but no thought to the method. Work is like a tool, and tools require direction.

We have to point our work towards the reality we want to create. That’s direction. That’s movement. That’s how dreams are made.

STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
— Josh Waggoner
