Just so happens that the crazy, creative, independent career you’ve chosen is a “win some-lose some” game. The ones you win are temporally encouraging, but they never seem to get you “there,” they only get you closer. The ones you lose are temporarily disappointing, and they never get you “there” either. But they too, always get you closer.
Therefore, the game isn’t about winning or losing anything, it’s about getting closer and closer to where you’re going.
Therefore the crazy, creative, independent career you’ve chosen is actually a “win-win” game—always inching you closer and closer to where you’re going, no matter how often you lose or how many times you win.
Therefore the game is rigged…in your favor. Good Choice!
