Am I Putting a Dent in the Universe?

It was Steve Jobs, the recently retired founder and CEO of Apple, who said:

“We are here to put a dent in the universe.”

He has certainly done that. Many would feel that no one can do it like him. He has turned Apple into the most successful company in the world at the present time.

Reading this I found myself asking:

  • Why am I here?
  • What is my purpose for being in the universe?
  • Do I want to also put a dent in it?

Yes, I do, and I am driven by three key motivators.

  • A compelling reason for being in the universe.
  • Self-discipline - Doing what I should do when I should do it, whether I feel like it or not.
  • A profound commitment to having meaningful relationships with people – in the end, nothing else matters – that change their lives and mine.

It is hard, dedicated work that takes time and commitment, and maybe a bit (or a lot) of passion.

So, do YOU want to put a dent in the Universe also?

The challenge is working out how we are going to do that,

what will get in the way and take hold of it,
