I am going to switch my job to follow something called passion. Not sure it is a passion or not, but it is something that continuously happens in my mind for several years and I am so excited to start with it.
There is a biggest obstacle that I may face with is lacking of motivation. This post is kind of a tool to help me overcome it.
The first tool is the simple drafting of the language village which is my 10 year goal. It is just a simple sketch of all the facilities I want to build to remind me whenever I am disappointed or forgot what I need to do, remind me the initial purpose at the beginning, remind me of the exciting feeling when I am at the very first time catching up with this idea.
The design will be updated with more detail in the future as I am building it up step by step. Maybe it is big or small, I do not know. But I believe that I will be extremely satisfied if I could make it coming true and pass it to the next generation as a kind of “legacy”.
Here it is:
The second tool is some quotes to get motivation from. I copied it here and put in this post. (original link)
