The long game: what this job is about. When was the last time I paid attention to anything for three years, even peripherally? Maybe this is what being a grown-up is, after all: keeping one’s eye on the ball for a long long time. While still choosing how best to manage the “petty, frustrating crap of life,” while maintaining time to think about – attend to – what really matters within, despite, in harmony with it all. Please see David Foster Wallace’s commencement address at Kenyon.
Actually, stop reading this: just go watch that. Have a nice day!
