ambition. life's work.

Ambition, I have come to believe, is the most primal and sacred fundament of our being. To feel ambition and to act upon it is to embrace the unique calling of our souls. Not to act upon that ambition is to turn our backs on ourselves and on the reason for our existence.

The idea that ambition is the thing that guides us to our life’s work is interesting. I think it is possibly more complicated then that. That our ambition highlights the things that interest us and that those are likely tied up in our life’s work.

It’s interesting at least... and deserves more thought.
