The philosopher Mark Kingwell on ambition:
The idea that somehow ambition is always about achievement in measurable ways itself needs to be queried. We’re here for a mortal span whose length we know not, and our ambition should really be to make the most of the time that we have, not knowing how much of it there is. And there is no time to be spent feeling shame at not doing things. You should find things you can do — however, whatever, method works for that — and enjoy doing them.From the 2011 To the Best of Our Knowledge episode “ProcrastiNation,” recently rebroadcast.
