You’re pretty ambitious. You have goals and dreams, and you’re hardworking. You want to be successful, and you have the drive to make it happen.
You won’t ever be satisfied with average, or even good. You want to be great.
But as you pursue greatness—whether it’s in your academics, your career, your business, your relationships or your life—you sometimes wonder if it’s worth it.
The sacrifices, the disappointments, the frustrations… what’s it all for?
In an attempt to do more and be more, maybe you feel like you’ve lost sight of what’s truly valuable.
I’ve by no means achieved greatness—far, far, far from it. But in thinking about what it means to live a great life, I’ve realized that it’s a lot like building a campfire on a cold night.
