You see my problem here?  Yeah.  Thought so.

  2. This is way more accurate than I'd really like to admit right now.

  3. Same here - I am actually going to school for things I like to do and am good at but could never, by itself, be a career (writing poetry). But, I am determined . . . and have to do side jobs to make money. But they're writing jobs, at least. Can you find a way to combine your circles into a real venn diagram?

  5. Here's my favorite Aristotle quote: "Your path lies where your skills and the needs of the world meet."

    I'm a good painter, but making money at it was a bitch. How many people buy original art these days? 1% of the population? For whom everyone is competing?

    F**k that.

    Then, one day, on a whim, while splitting firewood, I carved a trout with my chain saw. It took me fifteen minutes, and I sold it for twenty bucks. I could have gotten more, but it was for a friend.

    I had no thoughts of success or failure. It was just fun, and people—just about everyone—like carvings. No more catering to the bourgeoisie, and my income exploded.

    Never give up.
