“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein
I have wondered my whole life, what my talent, what my interest, what my passion is. And I am still not clear about that. But what I am clear about is, that I am curious about everything, I like to learn about various unrelated things, and I believe that my mind will connect them when time is right. There are no unrelated things, its just that with our industrialization and classification, we made the points distance themselves. And the biggest inventions are made possible by connecting the points that were distant.
If you are clear about your talents and interests, lucky for you, pursue it and raise the bar. And if you are not clear about your path and choice, don’t worry, because you can more easily look at the big picture and connect the unconnected. Every human being, has his strengths, it is just the perspective which is different.
You know for yourself, what is the best for you, what you really like to do, what you like to learn about. Trust your heart, listen to it, and make this world a more colorful place.
