"Taylor Swift telling you to follow your dreams is like a lottery winner saying liquidate your assets and buy powerball tickets"-@BoBurnham
Come on, I’ve never agreed with the lottery analogy. The chances here are far better. You can buy a powerball ticket and wait while doing nothing. Or you can follow your dreams while deciding how hard you work ; to improve. Or where you go ; to meet people.
Following your dreams is a long shot nonetheless, but there are at least a few variables you can try to control.
That’s not exactly buying a lottery ticket.
True, there’s no guarantee you’ll ever make it, but it’s the startup founder failing to pivot to exactly what people want. And the blogger who doesn’t know what he’s doing.
