Finding the true activity that fulfills you

Lately I have become quieter here on Medium and generally on my blogs. No one has probably noticed this and I would like to sound the all-clear to everyone else.

However, it’s not because I don’t enjoy writing anymore or anything, but I have recently found ideas for my other passion, programming and development, which I am now pursuing.

And that’s what this short article is all about:

Follow your passion

Maybe sometimes it’s like giving false commitments. I, for instance, wrote an article every day for a while. Maybe because I thought that it would make me better known, that I would become better, that I would go viral. But fuck, I don’t want to write unless I feel like it.

Rather, I have noticed that programming is at least, if not more fun than writing, I have not really been able to do so recently because I have devoted myself more to writing.

So my little advice: Listen into you. Do you do what you spend most of your free time with, really because it is infinitely fun and fulfills you, or more out of commitment?
