I have a lot of different things I want to do before I die. The kind of things that people devote their whole lives to. I want to make music that reaches a lot of people; I want to write a novel; I want to make a movie; I want to make money as a stand-up comedian. It takes 10,000 hours of focused practice to get good at something. Shouldn’t I know better than to believe that all that is realistically attainable for me? I’m 23 and I haven’t done any of those things.

Then again, there’s over 87,000 hours in 10 years alone. I should have no excuse!!
