“To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal.” – A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
When growing up, thinking about stuff like being the best, surpassing your father in a craft like fishing or butchering, or attaining the highest grades in order to impress schools like Harvard, or impress places like Google, is funny since you’re a kid. Kids don’t think of that stuff. For starters, they can’t process that much information. They need to gain life experience.
