Schlagwort-Archiv: Leidenschaft


Was uns verbindet und immer wieder zusammen kommen lässt, ist neben der Leidenschaft für unsere Arbeit vor allem die Art und Weise wie wir Baustelle gestalten. Wir wollen in unserem eigenen Rhythmus arbeiten - mal schnell mal langsam, mal zwölf mal drei Stunden - wir wollen weich sein, lachen und rumalbern, wir wollen Fehler machen können und lernen und wir wollen am Ende ein geiles Ergebniss haben von dem wir handwerklich vollstens überzeugt sind. Wir sind kompetent und haben trotzdem Fragen und manchmal Zweifel.

I've confused passion with excitement. An issue people rarely talk about these days is what true passion actually feels like. Instead we assume that passion feels like excitement — that passion is inherently exciting — but that assumption is usually wrong. You see, it's easy to get briefly excited about something — an idea, a project, a potential promotion—and think that means we're passionate about it too. But this sensation of excitement is different from the type of deep passion that drives and fulfils people long term. Excitement comes and goes; it wanes when times get hard, when the work gets tough, when creative flow turns into drudgery. True passion, however, arises after you've put in the long hours necessary to become a skilled craftsman, a skillset you can then leverage to have an impact, to gain autonomy and respect, to shape and control your destiny.

Eifersucht ist eine Leidenschaft,
Die mit Eifer sucht, was Leiden schafft.

Franz Grillparzer

"Logics" are not logic.

We misunderstand logic if we think there are "logics" among which we could somehow choose. There is reasoning. Specific formal systems may or may not adequately capture aspects of correct reasoning. But there is no neutral place outside logic from which to decide what "logic" to adopt.
