“I believe it’s true that the difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing. The difference between the two is living intentionally and living by accident.”
From Michael Gerber’s “The E-Myth Revisited” — a book that a few people have recommended to me. Finally got around to it.
