Letter to a Young American

Via Open Culture.

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.
