I don’t want to pretend that everything I did this year was a success, because it wasn’t. I’m only human and definitely prone to failure (something I’d like to actually do more often, if we’re honest).

Things for other people

There was a lot of stuff that I did last year not because I wanted to, but because other people wanted me to. I thought about my reputation, and about the happiness of others, before the value of my own time.

If the things you do are primarily things that other people want, you’re going to burn out much quicker than if you’re doing things you enjoy, and finding a way for that to help other people.


Do you think that’s fair to say? Or is that stupid and selfish? Let me know in the comments!
