I don’t want to be interesting. I want to be good.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Love this quote, but if we are good then are we not indeed interesting?
Andy Warhol is quoted saying “I’m afraid if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all its interest.” Interesting comment, but not sure I do agree with this one.
I would agree that staring at a soup can would not be interesting to me, but staring at a beautiful sunrise would never lose interest to me.
What are your thoughts?
Malcolm Gladwell wrote that it takes at least 10,000 hours to be good at anything.
