These are the lines spoken by Terri Trespicio at a TED talk where she recommends to stop searching for passion and start doing stuff. Can’t agree with her more.
Our society is plagued with this philosophy and this idea sells quite well. Not to say that its wrong but you loose out opportunities in this process.
Instead its way better to focus your energy on the job at hand.
It’s a very thoughtful and inspiring talk and I will highly recommend it.

I wrote a whole Post on this topic sometime back. You might benefit from reading that.
The growing popularity of Android platform inspires many to take up Android App Development. But few persist to become good at developing quality Apps.
Ivan is someone who has been able to do just that. In his blog he shares how each of his App was instrumental to make him better.
For instance he writes that the one App that inspired him was a two-hour project.
Originally developed to make me a millionaire, once 1,428,571 users purchased the app as Google takes 30 cents out of every dollar, The Dollar App was made to test my merchants account.
Little did I know that years later I will receive an email from a happy mom stating that it was the best dollar that she ever spent since her boy was smiling every time my app gave him a hug.
Like wise every App he created has a Story to tell. His tips and advice is quite valuable to anyone who is considering App Development.
