THE GREAT PUMPKIN CARVER
Every October the internet is flooded by amazingly carved pumpkins. If you see a pumpkin that totally takes your breath away, you can be 96% sure it was carved by Ray Villafane. It was as if Ray was put on this earth to do one thing, carve pumpkins. Sure he can do other things, but his pumpkins are masterpieces, so why bother to do anything else? The downside to being this good at this one thing is that he only has a short window of time to show the world what he's capable of. Such a shame.
The take away from this post is not that you suck at carving pumpkins, but that you should strive to find the one thing in this world that you can be amazing at. Keep your mind open, try new things whenever you can. The world's best surfer probably doesn't live by water, the best musician, may never pick up a guitar, the person who could cure cancer might never take a science class, you get where we are going with this. There is no way to know what you could be great at unless you make an effort to try to do everything.
