Life is not about finding yourself. It is about creating yourself
— G. B. Shaw
Small things matter. Small things are achievable, no matter what else is going on. Small things create big things. You often have control over small things.
It took parenthood for it to click – there’s nothing like taking care of an infant to beat the snot out of one’s formerly unshakable standards for How Life Should Be.
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. Don’t fear failure: Fear being in the same place next year as you are today.
