Really believe in your heart of hearts that your fundamental purpose, the reason for being is to enlarge the lives of others. Your life will be enlarged also. And all of the other things we have been taught to concentrate on will take care of themselves.

(Philippians 4:10)

I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.
For me the thrill comes from innovating within a basic design and making something that beautifully performs its purpose.
