Success Vector

By: jwilder, 11/23/2021

The word "vector" is from Latin, and means "carrier or transporter."

What you enjoy can be a vector to learn things you might not enjoy.

I became interested in grammar and sentence structure when I was writing a text based adventure game. I had to take the user's input, such as "break door with axe" or "open the red book" and convert the sentence into an action applied to specific objects in the game. This type of problem is called Natural Language Processing (NLP). I was fascinated. My love for programming was a vector for learning sentence structure.

You can also use what you enjoy to get something better. I enjoyed computer programming, but my career was in drafting. I used my love for computers to move into computer aided drafting, then to programming. The process took ten years (and several jobs), but I got a career in programming without a degree.

We have access to different sources of power (motivation). By understanding the things that naturally motivate us, we expand the possibilities of what we can learn and achieve.

What's our vector, Victor?
