We are incorrect when we say we don't have enough time. We have exactly the same number of hours per day as every person we’ve ever marveled at; Jasper Johns, Leonard Cohen, Alex Honnold, Jane Goodall, Norman Mailer, Malcolm Gladwell and even Anthony Bourdain.
I admired quite a few things about Tony, but one of the things that inspired me most was that he realistically got a late start. He was in his mid-40s by the time he got on TV. He was the age I am now before I had ever even met him. He made himself schedules and to-do lists and he accomplished so much in the last decade. All of us who aspire to accomplish things, should be inspired by his productivity. In my opinion the key take-away is that it is honestly never too late to pursue your dreams. Let’s get to work.
