What do you answer to the simple question: who are you?
Do you state:
former partner of
bank account worth of
earned this much
Or do you remember that you are, above everything else, a unique individual. You are you, not your degrees, not where you studied, the money on the bank or what's not...
Your actions do speak for you. Therefore, be careful what you work on. It does not have to be built work, it does, however, have to be interesting.
After 4 years of trying to figure out what is it that you are, go back, see what you have worked on. Next time you want to prove who you are, remember, everyday you can rewrite your own history. Don't let time go by, look back and say, "all I do is write this and the other, while i should be doing strategies, competitions, objects, etc"...
DARE TO BRING IT... or accept your boring faith! but don't hide behind work you don't like doing by saying: "i need this because it pays"...
