I think this is when you're going to figure out that imagination is what's really important, and difficult. My favorite example is rich movie stars. 99% of them just end up going to clubs, getting wasted, and banging a bunch of people. I always look at them and think, what a waste! Then I look at people like Richard Branson, and I'm like, WOW! You're killing it! The guy has a freaking private island and a space ship. He puts all the people who have no imagination to shame. You don't need a lot of cash to make an adventure out of your life, it just takes imagination and discipline to see it through.
No one's going to be able to give you a good answer to this. My favorite hobby is reading adventure stories, both fictional and real life, maybe you ought to start there for some inspiration? A favorite quote of mine is:
“I’ve lost a couple of friends in freak accidents,” he explains. “It makes you realize how fragile life is, how quickly it can be taken away. I think about my death at least once a day. I say to myself, ‘Am I living my life? Am I enjoying my life today?’ Because this is not a rehearsal. This is it.”
I also very much second 7w5, taking care of the weak and vulnerable is very fulfilling in a way nothing else could ever be. There are lots of built in lines of code inside of you that you've probably never had executed. I hear hunting is like that, it's a primal urge, something that flicks a switch and turns on execution of something you didn't even know you had inside of you. I have no interest in hunting, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was true nonetheless.
