"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Focus on a Problem, Not Your Passion

When it comes to careers, we’re told to follow our passions. 
 
But you might find greater satisfaction if you work on big problems. 
 
Whether it’s an issue in education, health care, climate change, poverty, or technology; figure out how you can contribute to a solution. 
 
Choose a problem that you care about — even personally — and let this dilemma be your compass. 
 
Get out of the office, meet people who are affected by the problem, and connect with those working in this area. 
 
Doing so shifts your attention from yourself to others. By becoming less focused on yourself, you might become happier with your work.
