It’s remarkable how many people are not trying. I know that. I have had times in my life when I didn’t either – I wouldn’t want to sound like I’m any different than anyone else.

If you could burn anything – any idea, object, word, insect… Anything – what would you burn? I think I would burn procrastination. It is the bane of my existence.
