You don’t have to have a dream.

People always talk about their dreams.

Fine, if you have something you’ve always wanted to do, go for it. If it’s a big enough dream, it’ll probably take you most of your life to achieve. So by the time you get to it and are staring into the abyss of the meaninglessness of your achievement you’ll almost be dead so it won’t matter.

I never really had one of these dreams and so I advocate passionate-dedication to the pursuit of short-term goals.

Be micro-ambitious.

Put your head down and work with pride on whatever is in front of you. You never know where you might end up. Just be aware that the next worthy pursuit will probably appear in your periphery, which is why you should be careful of long-term dreams. If you focus too far in front of you won’t see the shiny thing out the corner of your eye.
