Patrick Combs - Blog Damn the Torpedos - 07/07/2008

It's so easy to dick around with your life.
To waste all the staggering potential that's available in each of your years, months and days.

Because if you don't grab life by the horns, the steering wheel - and really direct it toward something that captures your imagination, that stirs your insides, that sets you on fire ... well, if you don't then your time is wasted. Your time is wasted doing what ends up looking like a bunch of nuthin.... paying bills, getting by, being entertained, sitting on the sidelines, watching the parade and dicking around.

If you're going to have a life that matters you got bloody go for it. You gotta get snappin. You gotta get on a mission. You gotta say screw all the stupid stuff that occupies your time but never amounts to nothing special. You gotta throw gasoline and a match on your passions.

A life without a real passionate mission, without a real creative aim, without a reason to stretch and sacrifice and burn and grab and pull and grasp and dance and shout and roll the dice is hardly a life at all.

Passion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Choose it, chase it down, wrangle it, live it, breathe it, eat it, sleep it, sacrifice for it, let lesser things be damned for it. Because THIS IS YOUR LIFE and it ain't no joke.

Don't dick around with your amazing opportunity to be the creator of an continuous array of amazing miracles. Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead!

In all sincerity,
Patrick Combs
