Academy and Grammy award winners talk about the crash they feel soon after they win. They get the high of the victory but soon after, many think ‘Is that it? Now what? Where do I go from here?’
It’s because being what society sees as ‘successful’ is something most of us strive for, but in fact creating a positive routine, being disciplined about it and improving every day is the success.
Over various times in my life, including recently, I’ve thought I’d love to publish a book one day.
But you know what, fuck that.
One, because all my past experience of when I published magazines proved that it’s not fun at all (actually a massive headfuck) once it’s out and you can’t change anything, and 2, I don’t want to write a book. I want to be writing a book.
Being in the process will be the success. Not to mention the reward.
