It’s not often that I quote Mitch McConnell… can’t say I plan to make a habit of it any time soon either. Elizabeth Warren 2020.

The Sweet Spot

“If you can find the what the overlap is between what you love doing and what people want, I mean, that’s the thing, right, and everybody talks about that – I’m very lucky that I got there. You and I both share the perspective that it took A LOT of struggle, A LOT of struggle, to get there, and it was not easy.”

“I don’t think I realized how hard it was until I found that fit, that overlap, between what I could provide, what I like providing, and what people want to buy. And then suddenly it was like, ‘Oh, this is what easy mode is – this is what it feels like to be graceful.’ Running head first into a wall for a few years, I thought that was normal, I thought that was what owning a business was like.”

Running head first into a wall… sounds about right 😉

Artists Who Become Great Just Work Harder…

“I believe artists who become great just work harder at it then anyone else. I really do. I mean painters, and things like that, they just work harder. They might have some ability, but they don’t have anymore ability than anyone else. They’re just driven. I think drive is the most important thing.”

“But what about responsibility, obviously you’re the best at what you do, so don’t you feel you have a responsibility…”

“…to be good, and to take it seriously… I owe it to my audience.”

Howard Stern & Norm Macdonald discuss being responsible for the work.
