I’m asked this a lot. I’m asked this by students, CEOs, artists, musicians, founders. I’m asked it by people who believe that dedication is the most vital part of their professional lives. I’m asked it by people who believe that single mindedness is the only key to success.
And I always tell them, that’s not what I believe in. It’s not what I believe in at all. I don’t think we need to hold onto just one area of interest or one project at the expense of all others. That’s certainly not the way I live my life. It’s not the way I’ve ever lived.
