Great post! If you are not passionate about what you do get passionate or find something else!
 
My friend and mentor, +August Turak, recently asked a client, the CEO of a rapidly growing mid size tech company, for his job description. 

"If you followed me around," he said, "you might think I do a lot of things. But I only have one job: I build passion. People say talent is in short supply. Talent is NOT in short supply. Passion is. I provide the "whys" so our people can provide the "hows." Once passion is in place my job becomes insisting that people take their vacations and trying to stay the hell out of the way."

Very cool energy storage technology. Probably the most promising I have come across. Lower cost based on abundant renewable resources.
 
Harvard scientists have successfully demonstrated a new flow battery that could transform how electricity is stored on the grid, making power from renewable sources such as wind and sun more economical and reliable - http://hvrd.me/sseT8

Obamacare website!

The result is a website that thus far has cost more than $600 million to build. That’s less than Facebook spent in its first six years of operation.

Every woman should watch this and think before they judge how they look compared to some model.

Great quote. See what I am saying.
