A Cartoonist’s Advice

I came across this wonderful comic by Gavin Aung that takes words directly from a graduation speech given by Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson in 1990.

Honestly, I’m just posting this here so I remember to read it every once in a while. The comic also reminded me of one of my favorite bits from Frank Chimero’s Great Discontent interview:

We all have desires. There’s always discontent and, as far as I can tell, there are two ways to go about it. The first is to get more. Make more money, make more stuff, work more, buy whatever you want. The second is to want less, to not be so desirous. Work less. Have less. Be still. Savor. All that gets easier if you look at success and say, “It’s just a ride.”
