When I was 14 I started to make websites. Back then I wanted to be a web developer. When I learned more about programming I wanted to be a game developer. So I went to university and got a degree in computer science. While taking my degree I realized that I didn’t really want to become a game developer either. What did I want then? The direction I was always facing was to create software products This is also where I ended up, now I am an IT consultant in a DevOps team on a large software projects. The direction I’m facing now is, to acquire the knowledge and skill, needed to contribute to high quality software development.
In my personal life I am doing my best to face in the direction of truth. I believe that telling the truth and living your life in a way so that you are able to tell the truth about how you live, is one of the best things you can do for yourself. It helps me gain a lot of inside into myself. And, having the credibility of truth among your peers, is one of the most valuable things you can ever achieve.
While writing this I’ve been thinking, what about this sentence “Where you are facing is where you’ll go. The direction you’re going, is where you’ll face.” is supposed to be powerful and helpful. After writing I’ve come to see this as a motivator for my future goals. Looking back on my life, I’ve been facing directly toward the things I have achieved. However, the things I wanted by haven’t achieved I haven’t been working hard enough toward.
My train has come to its destination. It have been an enjoyable ride.
