Some thoughts from the road…
Being versus Having (thanks for the reminder Matt)
Eating just enough versus all you can eat.
Doing the right thing versus merely not doing something illegal.
Humanity versus Entitlement.
Applying oneself and working hard versus counting on one’s talent.
(What’s true for talent also goes for beauty and inherited intelligence, which are also just lucky gen-lottery results. If one relies on them exclusively one steers into trouble.)
