Skateboarding is only one example of any hobby, purpose or pastime that any person may have and develop a true passion for. It is truly difficult for me to go eight hours without thinking about it in one way or another. I become cranky if I don’t “go skate” in some way for more than four consecutive days. It makes me feel as though no matter what happens in life, I will have a home base with skateboarding. Even if I break my neck or go blind, I would have a family in skateboarding. I would still have that passion for the sport regardless of if I could push that fast again. It will never love you back, but it will also never fuck you over. Maybe just bite you in the ass a bit… But I digress...
Starting your days without a drive.. A direction to faithfully follow for yourself.. That’s the hustle. The good hustle. How would life exist without such? A drift, constantly down to the minute, wondering what the next moment will bring to you? Lack of intention reaches lack of results, although luck is a relevant catalyst to progress.
There’s something to be said for serendipity, yet it’s easy to not reach goals when you don’t set any.
