Pursue Greatness.

A new documentary focuses on Bruce Springsteen's recording of Darkness on The Edge of town back in 1977. In an aside he recalled his musical ambitions back then.

I didn't want to be rich.
I didn't want to be famous.
I just wanted to be great.

Not a bad marketing philosophy when you think about it.

Good point Eaon. Missed a trick there by not using boss in the headline.

you missed the bit that puts the post into proper context:

"More than rich, more than famous, MORE THAN HAPPY, i wanted to be great."

Greatness demands a price, upfront, without garantuee of success. Hence so few pursue it.

He said happy? My dictation isn't what it used to be.
