Richard Feynman - The Pleasure Of Finding Things Out (by TheScienceFoundation)
It sounds like you’re really happy but it’s difficult to manage your desire to solve problems and your desire to be growing constantly. It might get a little OCD now and then but so can anything, and you have to watch for those moments and learn to manage them too. You can also learn a lot about meditation and philosophy for example. At the end of the day though managing your need for learning is a problem too, which also needs resolution and can’t be ignored!
Your desire is more common than we think. People want challenges, especially if provided the right environment. Once you succeed at one challenge you only want more. Problems are prevalent in this world and are begging to be solved. My challenge to you is to be thoughtful about which problems you solve and where you put your energy. It really is the meta-challenge, the challenge to be aware and choose your challenges and your life path wisely. We can all continue learning forever, the human mind is built like that, but what is the point of learning? We must also have an answer to the question of what problems are important? If your focus is computing then which parts of computing should you focus on and why? This is also an important problem to consider, and a fundamental part of the human experience and what you might call rational thinking.
