Don’t Aim at Success (you’ll miss)
“Don’t aim at success – the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.”
~ Viktor Frankl, preface to the 1992 edition of Man’s Search for Meaning
Little needs to be added to this.
