"Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it."
"If you want to love what you do, abandon the passion mindset ('What can the world offer me?') and instead adopt the craftsman mindset ('What can I offer the world?')."
"Doing things we know how to do well is enjoyable, and that’s exactly the opposite of what deliberate practice demands..."
"If you’re not uncomfortable, then you’re probably stuck at an 'acceptable' level."
