Engagement, Not Acknowledgement

I’m taking a break from big writing to do some reading and to ponder ideas.

In the meantime, here are some segments from my journal to keep you thinking.


The greatest vessel takes the longest to finish.
— Lao Tzu

The greatest capacities take the longest to develop. The greatest endeavours for the longest time look like follies.

Don’t be in a rush to cash in.

Do the work that you know you need to do. NOT beating your head against the wall aspiring to be something that you’re not, and therefore don’t actually want to be.

Instead, do what you’re drawn to do. Take the path that optimizes your willingness to get engaged.

Engagement is your priority, not acknowledgement.


NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE TALK LOL, SO PLEASE LEAVE ME ONE IN-DEPTH COMMENT OF YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS ARTICLE (either here or wherever you found it).

P.S. Fun fact I’ve been in extreme sport for 10 years and I recently wrote a book about the science and philosophy of MASTERY. Click here and scroll to the bottom of the page to watch an in-depth video about what I’ve found.
