Tom- I appreciate your feedback. I probably didn’t do a good enough job of clarifying that in the article. In many ways — I’d rather have someone (like you’re doing) challenge me. It’s only going to make me become a better writer. If I had known at a young age exactly what I wanted to do, I would have given it everything I had, every day. Personally, it took me some time to figure out exactly what that is. I guess Suze Orman’s story resonates with me in that way.
And regarding your Steve Jobs quote — it’s one of my favorite quotes. If anything, I’ve used that quote TOO many times in my articles! Thanks for your comments and for the critiques. All my best to you — Chris
