There’s a lot of talk about going the distance: setting your own personal records, being your best self, making the grade, and so forth.
I think this is all very important, with one distinction: you want to make sure you’re pushing your own edge, not an edge that somebody else chose for you.
Someone else’s edge might be starting a company, or writing a book, or running a marathon, or traveling the world. Your edge might be any of those, but it also might be entirely, completely different.
Maybe for you, these aren’t edges. Maybe your edge is needing to learn a language fluently, or do a photography project, or volunteer at a charity.
It’s not important that you do what every one else is doing. What’s important, is seeing what fascinates you in this world: the strange, the unusual, the geeky, the unpopular, the odd, the fascinating.
If there’s something that you find so fascinating and interesting that you can’t imagine not doing it, or you can’t imagine being bored with it, that’s your edge. Push that.
