Validation for a Life Lived on Principle

“There are many ways to live your life. That’s maybe the most important thing to realize about your life, that every aspect of your life is a choice. But there are default choices. You can choose to sleepwalk through your life and accept the path that’s been laid out for you, you can choose to accept the world as it is, but you don’t have to. If there’s something in the world that you feel is a wrong, and you have a vision for what a better world could be, you can find your guiding principle, and you can fight for a cause.

What matters to you?
What might you believe in?
And, what might you fight for?”

~Bret Victor, Inventing on Principle
