Piotr @zuralski: What’s the one thing that motivates you the most?
What motivates me the most is a desire to have no motivations.
This sounds almost like a cliche. And, in fact, the statement itself is a motivation. I wish I didn’t have the desire to have no motivations. But I do. I’m motivated to make a lot of money. Every day. I’m motivated to write on this blog. I’m motivated to maybe write a novel or try stand-up comedy. I have 100 different motivations.
But every motivation is a battle. Its hard work. Its sweat and tears and failure.
I’m tired of those.
I want no more tears. I want no more failure. I don’t want to be motivated by anything so I can find out who I am without the putrid layer of motivation stinking up the joint all around me.
