Move toward what interests you.

In what way do I wish the world were different? What problem can I help solve?
This puts the focus where it should be — on how you can serve other people.
In choosing what to do, I always take into account whether it will benefit other people.
I have a responsibility to make the world a better place.
Once you’ve thought of what or whom you care about most, write it down. Psychologists have found that asking people to reflect in writing on their core values has miraculous effects on motivation.
Personal interest and self-transcendent purpose are the dual engines of intrinsic motivation. In combination, they’re more powerful than alone.
