If you have an idea of what you want to do for the future, you must go at it with an almost monastic obsession. You need to go at it single-mindedly and let nothing get in your way.
I love this. Growing up, I wasn’t much of a Black Flag fan, but most of my friends were, so I always knew who Henry Rollins was. However, it wasn’t until I started reading his books that I really started to admire and appreciate him. This video, Letter to a Young American, embodies exactly what I like most about him. He’s always well-thought out, honest, and inspirational, without trying hard to be so.
