There are people (me included) who believe that making plans and having goals are the only ways to achieve success. We imagine, for example, that that’s how great musicians, writers, artists come to be.
However, the best way to live is from moment to moment. You can have a dream like wanting to become a musician, but if you postpone your life until you achieve that dream, you will only suffer. Instead, live in the moment. Play your music freely, paint like a mad man, and if your practice brings you success, then that’s great, but it shouldn’t be the be-all and end-all. Nature puts all of this in perspective and so does my little girl Stella <3.
I have to add some information from GQ. I read about Brad Pitt today in GQ and the article stated: "He said he still enjoyed acting, but he didn't want to center his life around it anymore. He was done living through the movies, he said: “There was just too much emphasis on finding interesting characters. I went, ‘Fuck me, man. Live an interesting life and the rest will take care of itself.’ Like, ‘You go out and you…live an interesting life. Get out and have real experiences.’ And that is what informs the work. Not going to find the interesting work and then trying to make it up. I just became more conscious of how I was living versus what I was living for.”
