“It’s common to hear “follow your bliss” or “do what you love and success follows.” Sounds great, right? Except here’s one small detail: You never get to know if it’s ever going to happen. You don’t get to choose if and in what form the success manifests; you don’t get to choose when it arrives.”
— Jeff Lin
In my newsletter last week I addressed the issue of startup founders with insufficient passion… you might want to read the thoughtful piece by Jeff, from which the quote above was pulled:
Jeff relates his view of the director Ang Lee, whom he interviewed before he was “successful” and operating at scale, and reveals vital information about Lee’s journey which you may not know. And whether you are a lone wolf entrepreneur, or a leader fighting to break through, Jeff has some perspective you’ll want to ponder.
(He’s also a great writer, and the piece is thought-provoking even if you are not an entrepreneur)
