I like making mistakes. I just hate when it takes me a while to notice that I’ve made one.
Homework is busy-work when you don’t give a shit. I would be a straight-A student if I took classes on subjects that I were actually passionate about.
BUT we all have to do what we gotta do.
My thought process is this:
If you’re going to spend time not doing your homework or jumping through bullshit hoops in order to get that grade-point average or degree, then spend it adding to your human capital and/or mental wealth. Make music, dance, write, or take pictures. Simply, CREATE.
You can question the relevance and worth of simple linear regressions, long-term liability & amortization accounts, and the taylor series. No one will ever question the worth of a creation to it’s creator.
But for God’s sake
Chase your dreams, not your diminishing alcohol and drug tolerance, slam count, or superficial desire for fame.
Depreciation is evident in everything tangible. Don’t let depreciation be an expense in your life’s income statement.
Live life with the intentions of adding value to it with each and every day. Invest in Yourself, pay respect, love with all you have, and yield happiness. Keep dreaming and achieving. Once you’ve achieved your goals, make new ones and push harder.
Make sure you leave this life with more value than you had when you began. The only thing that should depreciate is your sense of fear in failure.
Ambition should always be running through your mind. You should always be striving to keep up.
A good rule of thumb in my eyes goes along the lines of this:
Things that are worth your time and effort are a little complex. This complexity yields a certain quality that results in something unforgettable and irreplaceable.
but at the same time, all good things should have a simple start.
