Don't aim at success —
the more you aim at it and make it a target
the more you are going to miss it.
For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued;
it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect
of one's dedication to a cause greater than oneself
or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself.
—Viktor Frankl, A Man's Search for Meaning
