I just watched Elon Musk and Sal Khan’s (of Khan Academy) conversation and I had a feeling which is very difficult to sculpt into words. The feeling is partially amazement – on seeing them working so earnestly towards things that they believe in. The feeling is partially humbling – when I consider how insignificant most of the things I do are like writing this post. The feeling is partially inspiration – to create something that positively affects or attempts to affect humanity at a global scale. The feeling is partially guilt – when I look at how I sqander away my time. The feeling is partially wonder – is there even a slightest chance that I’ll ever do or be able to do something remotely as such. The feeling saddens me a little because I know that it will pass and at exactly the same time tomorrow, I’ll still be right where I am right now.
