Wanting

Standard

One day I read this from “The Art Spirit” by Robert Henri (1923)

“…you can do anything you want to do. what is rare is this actual wanting to do a specific thing: wanting it so much that you are practically blind to all other things, that nothing else will satisfy you…I mean it.

there is reason for you to give this statement some of your best thought. you may find that this is just what is the matter with most of the people in the world; that few are really wanting what they think they want, and that most people go through their lives without every doing one whole thing they really want to do…”

And that is the day I stopped being an accountant/tax consultant/business professor, moved to New York City and started spending my days with 6-year-olds.
