What keeps you going?

Posted 22 January 2011 - 06:28 AM

I don't know about you guys, but i'm 1000% more productive (at learning) when i'm motivated.So, i ask you, what motivates you? (this can be an anime, a book, a comic, a youtube channel, your favourite pornstar, anything)

For me, it's like this:
-Deathnote (a great anime, not related to programming, but it works)
- http://www.youtube.c...h?v=LnSp9rgfel8 (don't ask me why)
- The social network (seen it 5 times in a week)
- GyroVorbis 's channel on youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/user/GyroVorbis )

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I love deathnote, truly a beautiful series and a man who want best for the world. Other than that I want to learn because everyone of my idols are coders, they are so successful in life. Besides that, I want to raise a family that knows they don't have to worry about poverty :)

The fact that I want to be successful and give my wife and I a nice comfortable life keeps me motivated.

Knowing that things I have coded in the past has helped myself and others make a lot of money. That and seeing hacker movies where the hackers get lots of chicks and think "Yeah, I just need a single app and I too will have all those chicks"

What keeps me motivated : Every time that I return a laptop (or any other computer item) to a customer whom was told by the Best Buy Geeksquad that "it's not fixable" always makes me smile & reminds me why I'm in business.

The look on their face when the screen lights up, it's just awesome.

Really??? That just makes me want to play borderlands.


The many years of bottom-of-the-barrel, shitkicker work I've done (even when the money was great), my family, being pissed when money is tight and we can't afford things, and the most recent: graduating this year.
