Harvard: Mastering the art of living fully

I hate the slightly dehumanizing, mechanistic words “high achievers.” Because the truth is that the mark of someone reaching for the stars isn’t “achievement” — but failure, of the kind that makes the hair on the back of your neck snap up. If you’re going to live a life that matters, I’d bet that sometimes in your 20s, you’re going to fail — spectacularly, in Technicolor.
