The calling

Don’t aim at success – the more you aim at it and make it your target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue … as the intended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a course greater than oneself.*
(Mihály Csikszentmihalyi)

It means everything to you but many will not care about what you are doing, others may even hate it, and yet the lives of some will be transformed, including your own.


(*From Mihály Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow.)
