We all should strive to learn to be better at what we do.
We are all trading hours and minutes of our lives to do something. Whether it is building something, creating something, or watching a sitcom, all activities have the same cost. Moments of your life.
You trade them for that activity.
I like the quote above, because I like to visualize men in robes quietly working alone over a small desk that folds into their lap, while a warm rain falls outside an open window on green leaves. People who have dedicated those hours of their life to what they feel is worth the cost we all pay, and they work very hard to be great at what they do.
Once they become masters of their craft, they change their names, to remind themselves, I believe, of what they are and what they have worked to become. The name shows the cost paid.
My name is still the same, but I am working at it.
