Our greatest success is ahead
Watching TV the other day (something relatively rare for me), I heard a woman say, “I can’t escape the feeling that my greatest successes are behind me.”
I immediately felt sad for her.
As creators we can never allow ourselves to think our greatest successes are behind us, they must always be in our future. Otherwise, our endeavours are surely futile.
Why do we create if not to make something that has an impact? If we think we’ve already had the biggest impact we can ever have in our life and with our work, what is there to aim for in creation?
