“Do not worry about being the best—worry about being the best at getting better.”
“Passion approached in the right way is an ongoing practice. A practice that not only leads to a wonderful experience of working but a wonderful experience of living.”
“When you’re under passion’s spell, the reward you think you’re chasing—usually some sort of contentment or satiation—is merely an illusion. We don’t get hooked on the feeling associated with achievement, we get hooked on the feeling associated with the chase.”
“We’re not wired to simply be content. We’re wired to keep pushing.”
