During the early days of our publishing company, whenever I created or took on an impossible project, I always had to muster up a profound intention to go for it, along with a fearless commitment to do the work and achieve the goal. Occasionally we slammed head on into a brick wall. But most of the time if our resolve was unwavering it usually worked out—we got close enough.

Important because I learned that simple lesson from Roger Daltrey. During an interview for a cover story, the Who’s high baritone said: “I go for the notes I know I can’t hit! But I’ve learned that if I have a profound intention of hitting it, along with a fearless commitment to go for it, I can usually get close enough.”
