I love this post.

It’s not aimed at musicians per se, but I think it’s highly relevant!

It’s from a really interesting guy who writes about what people these days like to call ‘lifestyle design’ and he touches on all kind of subjects.

It reminded me of a post that I put on our main blog where Will Smith sets out his methodology for succes – read and watch here how to achieve your goals. I know that loads of people have found that very useful and inspiring. Someone pointed out to me yesterday that the bit where Will says he isn’t especially talented but is massively motivated is a very important thing for aspiring artists to realise. Talent alone isn’t enough you need to do something with it.

How about becoming ‘fucking awesome’?

That’s gonna help, right?

People will tell you that there are all kinds of yardsticks to measure progress.

What they don’t say is that most of them are worthless.

Money, career, fame… whatever. That’s all fine and good, but the bottom line is that there is one thing– just one– that really matters.

Being fucking awesome.

You can be broke and be awesome. You can be in a wheelchair and be awesome. You can be homeless and be awesome. You can even be dead and be awesome.

You want a purpose to your life? I got one for ya.

From this day forth, your purpose is to be the most fucking awesome person you can imagine being.
