Check out this original song by Nathaniel Shapiro, a talented actor and singer/songwriter I met in LA a couple of years back.
He wrote this about our mutual friend Chris, who has been a close buddy of mine since middle school. Chris took all of this location independent stuff to heart a couple of years ago and has been living and working from all around the globe ever since.
A few details may have been fabricated in this story.
Any project or system that involves people, no matter how well-intentioned, eventually loses luster once the initial excitement and momentum wears off. Everything becomes a job after long enough, no matter how infatuated you were in the beginning.
The Work and The Results are two different things. You can’t say “I want to do the results.” You can only say “I’m going to do the work.” You might want to accomplish the results, but results only happen because of the work you do.
