You cannot solve all the worlds problems

| life |

Instead you should just choose one and work on it for the rest of your life. I feel that this concept is at the root of my problems. I am trying to solve my personal crisis, my professional crisis, my educational crisis, and at the same time study music, math, medicine, cooking, living, smoking, drinking, and being a philanthropist.

Even if I had twelve arms and a charming young assistant by the name of Franz, there still wouldn’t be enough time in the day to get everything accomplished.

So, another revelation. Choose something, stick with it. Finish it, repeat.

I feel that I have the potential to paint masterpieces in my life, if only I would stop switching the canvas every dozen brush strokes.
