There are smart people and there are passionate people. Smart people show up, do good work, and then go home. Passionate people can’t help but show up early, drive everyone crazy with ideas, suggestions, and numerous attempts at solutions that result in both success and failure. They stay late, and they annoy the smart people because they make the smart people look lazy. When they fall down, they can’t help but get back up, and try again. Smart people annoy the passionate people, because the smart people are just trying to get the A. Passionate people don’t care about the grade, they care about learning something, and being better.
Smart is boring, and easy, for the smart ones. Smart is safe and smart is average.
Passion is life, and risk, and adventure, and unpaved roads, and massive fulfillment.
