What Do You Want To Be Known For?

Something I ask myself every day. Something I still haven’t answered.

May 04, 2017

This question has haunted me for some time.

I’m constantly in battle with my passions / talents. Indecisive on where I should sow them.

I know what I’m good at, I know the limitlessness of my capabilities, why is it so hard to decide?

Maybe you already know the answer to this question — you’re way ahead of me.

I’m writing this to remind myself that what I am known for can change.

I don’t have to be the same person I am now in 10 years. I don’t have to have the same passions, skills and mindset.

In fact, I truly hope I am not the same person at all.

What I want to do now isn’t a lock-in. I’m not making a life-long commitment to something that I might hate the thought of in 10 years.

The same goes for you.

Commit deeply to something. Obsess over it. Become that thing. Become the best at that thing.

Show up every day for two years.

Only at that time can you decide whether or not it is for you.

In the early stages, when you suck and you know it, you are not in the right place to decide if it’s what you should be doing.

You might discover your true calling on this journey. You might discover exactly what you don’t want to be doing with your life.

The commitment part is the hardest thing for me. I don’t want to waste time.

On the other hand, time is the only thing that will allow me to truly discover whether something is what I should be doing.
