#31 - Do you follow your heart? & Steve Jobs

1- Topic of the week

Among the people that inspire me most, Steve Jobs definitely has an important place. A bit more than a year ago, when I quit my job, I wasn’t sure what to do. I had quite a bit of experience in the foodtech industry but couldn’t feel the passion. I had had a few side businesses but they never took off.

So I started to listen to some of the most insightful entrepreneurs, like Peter Thiel, Elon Musk & of course Steve Jobs. It then became very clear to me that I needed to do something I was truly passionate about. And I was truly passionate about personal growth. About challenging myself and keeping learning.

Following your passion can be scary. You jump into the unknown. But I don’t know many people who have looked back. And we are at a time in history when you can live from your passion, whatever it is.

It’s not that simple to find what you’re passionate about. It takes a lot of trial and error, of getting outside your comfort zone.

But whatever you think it is, take Steve Jobs’ advice. Don’t settle and follow your heart.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
— Steve Jobs
