I used to hate this poem: “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both…” Yes, I hate it when people quoted or talked about Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken.” Why? Because it’s sooo cliché.
Earlier this year, at 29 years old I walked away from a path I carefully carved out for myself in the last 6 or so years. This path that would have perfectly laid out my life for the next few decades until my – “retirement.”
A few people have told me “I don’t know if I’m the right audience for your podcast. First of all, I’m not creative. Second of all, I don’t know if I would ever quit my job to pursue something creative.”
The point of spending a disproportionate amount of time on what is important to you is that eventually mastery and expertise will ensue. Then one day. . . one day you will be able to support yourself with that One Thing that is meaningful to you.
