"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."
- Steve Job's Commencement Speech at Stanford
I heard this Steve Job's speech at my graduation, and it truly stuck with me. It helped me think about what I truly wanted to do with my life as opposed to what society expected from me. It ultimately helped me find the job that I currently do. I do my job because I love it. I wake up every day feeling fortunate and happy that I get to do my job.
