A new path for me
July 16, 2014
For the past 7 years I have been on the wrong path in life. I was on my way to being an engineer, having a nice apartment, doing some occasional travel and living comfortably. All while helping one or more companies make more money. Though it is a desirable life for many, it is not making me happy. I feel a lack of purpose in a conflicted world. Money and consumption are becoming more annoyances than tools to better my life. I need peace for me and my environment as well as knowing my work helps the world even if only a little bit.
The new path and transition
Though I am still tweaking it, in general terms, I would like to make a living by assisting humanitarian causes or organizations using my skills in technology while traveling around the world. The change from the old path to the new one cannot be abrupt. I still need to finish a some things I started, cut off other, and especially plan and organize.
What is left and needs to be finished
What needs to be cut off, simplified or improved
- Possessions (simplified)
- Old technology (cut off)
- NGO/Humanitarian work experience (improved)
I hope that working towards this new path will finally bring me the happiness and purpose I crave.
