Own What You Make
We live now, more than ever, in an overly speculative world. Conjecture and superficial opinions threaten to usurp enduring wisdom. There is no convenience in the time necessary to develop a potent depth of understanding.
True knowledge is acquired by many unplanned experiences of failure and hardship coupled with periods of deep reflection.
The correct mark of an individual is not the immaculate material wealth or a rapid succession of multiple successes they may enjoy. Rather, it is being authentic and holding firm to well-earned enlightenment and not letting commercially fueled innovation hijack their scarce attention, resources, or impetus for action.
Early on, we aspire to fulfill social obligations by learning what type of achievements we are supposed to seek.
However, a realized person understands that the onus is entirely theirs to decide what they'll pursue.
Choose your path, take action and let the resulting evidence of your efforts speak for you.
Whatever you make — and learn from the creation process — own entirely.
