Excellence needs a social environment that provides us with enough comfort, respect, and time to develop our talents. Choose jobs, friends and partners who encourage what you are trying to do.
MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE
Have the creativity – and the courage – to challenge teachers and authority figures without abandoning your craft. Develop your own sense of what it means to do your craft well.
Keep an eye on how you distribute your time. Make a distinction between growth and recovery, and make sure you use your free time in a balanced way.
The right kind of education is essential. Don’t get discouraged if you’ve had trouble in educational environments that weren’t oriented around your craft.
Many self-help writers are either telling people to work hard and be productive or practise self-care to avoid burnout. But neither advice is great.
If we only focus on getting by, we won't grow. If we become overly obsessed with ideals, we'll burn out. We need balance where we can distribute time effectively and in a way that leads to excellence, not just success.
Example: People who hate sports cannot understand why thousands are cheering in a stadium for a few men who are chasing a ball.
We all say we want to be happy, but happiness is often out of our grasp. Maybe the problem is not so much with us, but with the concept of happiness.
A better concept is eudaimonia, which means 'good soul,' 'good spirit,' or 'good god.'
