What motivates you? What are you passionate about?

I'm interested in what motivates you. What gets you up in the morning, excites you, and fulfills your day to day?

    Jun 18 2012: Hi

    My home life... it's the reason I work, the stuff I day dream about, the way I start my day and finish it, it's what I get better for, what makes me smile and the thing I have most ambitions for...

    My dogs, my horse, my cat, my best friend, the countryside, freedom (and when it's cold and rainy a big sofa we can all get on - except the horse) and a good film!)

    Jun 14 2012: I've been on the planet for half an century. I've held someone as they were born and I've held someone else as they died. I'm older than my countrys' Prime Minister. I've decided that it's time I questioned all the things that I thought I believed and establish what I really think to be the truth about the world, humanity and the future. It's an interesting project and leading me in all sorts of unexpected directions. Recording the process on a blog

    Jun 12 2012: What really motivates me is when I get the chance to create something. It could be new knowledge, new art, new programs, new business. Something that did not exist before I put it together. I usually don't care what other people think about it and do not need anyone's approval.

    Sometimes the more challenging the project, the more I enjoy it.
