Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Don’t Question Your Compulsion

Let’s say you feel compelled to create something, but you don’t know why. So you get deeply into it, and start spending more and more time working to make this thing, whatever it is.

You realize you’re going to have to teach yourself and eventually master some very difficult things in order to realize your vision. This takes more time, but you don’t care; you are focused, maybe even obsessed.

At first, you think other people will share your enthusiasm for this thing, but over time you realize they don’t.

Then you start wondering why exactly you are doing this thing. If no one else cares, what’s the point?

Well, here’s the point: You want to do this thing because it’s why you are here, it’s who you are. Something inside of you wants to come out. Whether it means anything to anyone else is incidental. If you don’t do it, you will not fulfill your destiny.

The thing is, one day you will be dead, and your chance to make this thing will be over.

Don’t question it.
