What the Mind Can Conceive and Believe It Can Achieve.

I believe that we are all drawn toward our life goals. It took me a long while, however, to figure out why I was drawn to computer programming. It was fun and I was good at it, but it hardly seemed my life purpose. In fact, I never fit the mold for your typical computer programmer. Now I am outside of the world of computer programming, perhaps never to return, and I now understand why I was drawn to computer programming.

Computer programming is a discipline that teaches you to think step-by-step. If we want to change the world, we must be able to do more than just dream. We must be able to describe our dreams in vivid detail for others to implement.

I am actively looking for other dreamers seeking to change the world. Together we will create the future.

I found this post through Google Search. As a result, I joined the Experience Project. This post was significant to me because of the following statement:<br />

I'm currently working on a screenplay for an Indie film but have had some trouble structuring it, not for myself but for the general public.<br />
<br />
I'm fully aware of what I've learned through my research and all that it implies but bringing it to others in the way it must be delivered (to those who have done no research) has presented a difficult task.<br />
<br />
After reading your post, I realized that the best thing I can do is keep in mind that "They must be able to implement it." IT being the content of my research and that brings me back to the heading of your post (the statement I entered into Google Search.) What the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.<br />

I had remembered this quote from college and it always stuck with me. I was doing the Google Search to discover who had said it.<br />

Wonderful how things work!

If you are drawn to programming, people will tell you how to be a programmer. Dream bigger. If you have the mind of a programmer, you can learn how the world works and write a "program" to change the world. Let's keep talking about it...

haha weird- i'm also a day-dreamer, and am finding myself drawn to programming. but i'm just in high school, so i don't know where that will take me.<br />
but i'm with you on seeking to change the world :)
