One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else.

Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.
Great leaders are always simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
