One, I push my deadlines closer than anybody else, or let's say it this way: I'm really late.
I am uncomfortable talking about the things that I write. It seems unseemly to me. I have no problem at all when I see anybody else talking about the same project, but I feel my work should speak for itself.
There is no question that I was given a lot of interesting and unique opportunities growing up... But I think people often misunderstand that I work as hard and want things just as badly as anybody else.
I mean, I think it's a two-way relationship: I think you should not have too much faith in your own rationality. You should not have too much faith in the rationality of, you know, anybody else either. We all learn together about the way the world is, and I think it's a sort of antidote to wishful thinking of all kinds.
The restaurant business is something that you have to treat like a baby. You have to constantly be there. You can't trust it to anybody else, because no one's going to love it like you do.
Ultimately, very few people parent their kids in ways that strike anybody else as reasoned, appropriate or sane.
I know that I can do myself better than anybody else can.
I go home at the end of the day and I rarely talk about what I did that day. So my wife's experience is just like that of anybody else whose husband goes away to a blue collar job and comes home bruised and dirty and often proud of the work that they're doing.
I'm just like anybody else: I have stuff to do in the day, whether that's writing a song or recording a song. I try to treat everything I do as just work.
Football players value job security and stability as much anybody else.
