I found this Richard Koch quote recently and it seemed to be just what I needed. So I created a desktop for myself so I wouldn’t forget it. If you’d like it, you can grab it here.
“Everything you want should be yours: the type of work you want; the relationships you need; the social, mental, and aesthetic stimulation that will make you happy and fulfilled; the money you require for the lifestyle that is appropriate to you; and any requirement that you may (or may not) have for achievement or service to others. If you don’t aim for it all, you’ll never get it all. To aim for it requires that you know what you want.”
