“I will say it again. Ambivalence is key.
You have to care about your work but not about the result. You have to care about how good you are and how good you feel, but not about how good people think you are or how good people think you look. . .
You will never climb Career Mountain and get to the top and shout, “I made it!” You will rarely feel done or complete or even successful. . . Our ego is a monster that loves to sit at the head of the table, and I have learned that my ego is just as rude and loud and hungry as everyone else’s. It doesn’t matter how much you get; you are left wanting more. Success is filled with MSG.”
