“Thoughts Become Things”
Take a second to think about what distinguishes you, as a hacker. Is it your impressive ability to stay (semi) functional for 24 hours on end? Maybe your unmatched ability to maintain a sense of humor, even when the Gods of Code decide to pick on you that day? Or is it your ability to easily process immense amounts of Red Bull?
While all of these things are impressive (seriously, props for the no sleep thing), what really distinguishes you hackers from others, is your unparalleled PASSION for what you do. A passion that is derived from a single feeling, and is guided by your need to see that feeling turn into a thought, the thought turn into an idea, and the idea come to life!
