This is the only place I can say something like this:
I cannot understand how people (including my close friends, my dad etc) can watch a bunch of grown men kicking a ball around, when I’m working on creating startups to literally change the world.
[EDIT INSERT: Why isn’t everybody else trying to do something exciting with their own lives rather than living vicariously through a bunch of soccer players?]
Yes, there’s a chance that my already generous ego has finally met its match [EDIT INSERT: in my possibly overly ambitious latest project], but at least I’m trying. And you know what - someday I’m going to make it. I just know. Its been going in that direction my whole life, every day it feels like some new piece of the puzzle is finally coming together.
Don’t get me wrong - I think sports are awesome, if you’re the one playing. I just can’t get myself to watch sports like a passive spectator. In fact, I’m rather focussed on staying athletic myself.
And yes, I do admire superior ability in anybody, but watching a month of soccer matches on TV seems absurd to me.
So is this my individual craziness, or does anybody else here understand? And I’m open to an opposite point of view, if you don’t agree I’d be just as interested.
