I take life lessons from tv shows, sometimes. Okay… often.
One writer I know tells me that he sits down every morning and says to himself nicely, “It’s not like you don’t have a choice, because you do — you can either type or kill yourself.”
So if your dream is solely based on getting to an imaginary finish line you’ve got a long and un-fulfilling pathway ahead of you, trust me.
Dream about making X. Don’t dream about being the person who made X.
