This quote is worth soaking in, too:
I’m not talking about ‘following your dream,’ either. I never liked the inspirational value of that phrase. Dreaming is a way of trivializing the process, the obsession that carries you through the failure as well as the successes - which could be harder to get through.
I mean - if you’re dreaming, you’re sleeping, and it’s important and imperative to always be awake to your feelings, your possibilities, your ambitions. But also know this, for your work, for your passion: every day is a rededication.
