I’ve never been very ambitious; I dont want to be a CEO. I’ve never cared about being involved in a hostile takeover. Never wanted to play the markets. Never wanted to be an editor-in-chief. I just want some land to work. And the opportunity to share the beauty of the world in a creative way.


  1. I know what you mean. I consider myself ambitious…but not in the way you describe. Never wanted to dominate other people or have some kind of fancy, superficially powerful title. And never cared much for people who were driven by that sort of thing either. I think our kind of ambition–the ambition of many artists–is simply undervalued. 🙂 Great post!

    1. Thank you so much! Such a thrill to hear from you. Now can you help me compare this with the value of school and living in the system, so that my fifth grader won’t give me such a hard time!?
