The experience reinforced two powerful lessons for me. Balancing can be difficult at first but, persevere and you always get there in the end Where you travel in your mind, you travel in reality
“How can I discover my source code?” and “I just don’t know what I’m good at or what my purpose is” The quick answer is to focus on what you enjoy doing. In the words of Joseph Campbell “Follow Your Bliss” FYB is not the destination. It’s the journey. The thing is you can’t discover your source code in the same way you solve the treasure hunt. In some ways it’s elusive like the gold at the end of the rainbow.
In fact, it’s fine to sometimes feel 0%. Crushed and deflated. Nothing for us to feel guilty about. But we do anyway.

Even though I have toothache and credit card bills stacked as high as the Eiffel tower on my kitchen table.” Actually crashing is fine.
