Needing inspiration? Look to the founder of Atari

CC thoughts

Everyone who’s ever taken a shower has an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.

– Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari

Today was a slightly down day for me. I keep searching for inspiration in different places as I try to figure out what to do next. I’m trying to find meaning in my life and decide what really drives me. What should I be spending my time on, and what goal should I be seeking?

I didn’t come across any concrete answers, but I did want to feature this quote. I’ve been having a bunch of good ideas lately, but it’s overwhelming when you realize how much work goes into making a good idea turn into something better.

When I get down again, remind me about this quote. I hope it’ll help me push through the barriers and make one of my ideas successful.

Perhaps it’ll help you, too.

  1. Hi Carolyn-I hope the rest of the day gets better for you. The questions I would ask you are a;) What are you most excited about? B) What are you most passionate about? Hope that helps! Great pleasure to meet a fellow Southerner and Janeite! 🙂

    1. Hi Christy! How sweet of you – thanks so much for the encouragement. I definitely need to keep these questions in mind and keep asking myself. Hello from a Southern Janeite 🙂

Tell me what you think!
