Jack London said, “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”
Mr. London was not talking about a 9-iron. He was talking about passion.
Take 100 people. How many of them chase inspiration with a club? How many are relentless, and possessed by a pursuit? I’d guess 10, tops. Most folks don’t seem wired to chase. But maybe they’re just not motivated.
The million dollar question – what motivates you to chase? The “eureka” moment? Accolades? Fame? Money? Personal satisfaction? The greater good? Answer that question, and understand what motivates you to chase, and you’re half way there.
Now stew on that one, and go get a club.
