Push things forward

We need struggle because we need the ideas. To quote author Bernard Malamud, “if you haven’t struggled, you haven’t yet lived.”

We seek less freedom, not more; constriction narrows down the number of options. It yields the gift of a clearer path.

We are condemned to fail forward at something. Handicaps stimulate persistence; weaknesses convince us to focus on our strengths. As the philosopher and novelist Colin Wilson once wrote: “Meaning instantly creates energy.”

It’s time to wake up and push things forward.
