We’ve got to really love what we’re doing if we hope to make a life out of it. The closer we get to our goals, the less sexy they become. The higher we get to the top, the more the glamour fades. After we accomplish something big, it doesn’t feel so glorious or special or even that difficult. This is why we must love the craft itself. We should burn our ideal resume and really fall in love with the day-to-day.
Let’s be preposterous. Let’s be ridiculous. Let’s be utterly oblivious to what is expected of us. Let’s change all the rules and really drop the jaws of bystanders. Let’s break every rule not out of spite but out of necessity and dedication to the bigger picture.
