What matters most in life? Charles Bukowski would probably say it’s not trying. His grave stone reads “Don’t try”. From years of hard living he learned to spot genuineness in people and knew that some of the most offensive among us are the try-hards.
“Just be yourself.” Well, the problem with that is, most of us have been taught “ourself” is what others expect us to be. Like the try-hards, few people expect or truly want you to reach your potential.
Better to be the best version of you that you can be. However skilled you are or happy with yourself as you are– there is always room for improvement. You can always make yourself better.
