Don't Focus on the Goals



My approach to what I do in my job — and it might even be the approach to my life — is that everything I do is the most important thing I do. Whether it’s a play or the next film. It is the most important thing. I know it’s not going to be the most important thing, and it might not be close to being the best, but I have to make it the most important thing. That means I will be ambitious with my job and not with my career. That’s a very big difference, because if I’m ambitious with my career, everything I do now is just stepping-stones leading to something — a goal I might never reach, and so everything will be disappointing. But if I make everything important, then eventually it will become a career. Big or small, we don’t know. But at least everything was important - Mads Mikkelsen (Vulture Interview)

The goal in any game is to finish with the highest points but it would be stupid to focus on the scoreboard. The score takes care of itself, focus on the ball. The only way to actually win is to get better everyday. - James Clear

Choose your corner, pick away at it carefully, intensely and to the best of your ability and that way you might change the world. - Charles Eames
