Success! Goals! Progress! Ambitions!
Pursue them all with the single
minded determination of a sociopath
who’s fear and concern for consequences
has been turned so low that cannibalizing
all that he loves seems like a rational decision.
Your money is better spent on a cord of kindling to
warm yourself with rather than that self-help
book that only fans the flames of the guru’s ego
and does nothing to fix his AI-like Asperger’s.
Winning rat race only chains you to the corporate
hamster wheel. If you think falling behind is the
worst fate then you’ve never looked closely at what
you are truly chasing.
Mediocre isn’t so bad as long as you’re free.
