“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something—your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” —Steve Jobs

I think enough time has passed for us to unemotionally discuss one of the greatest television shows ever. If you’re a fan (or perhaps after that controversial final season, were a fan), you know I’m talking about Game of Thrones. If you’re in the minority with the willpower to have not gotten sucked into the cultural phenomena, stay with me nonetheless.
(And perhaps look into how you can bottle that willpower of yours as a remedy for addicts of every kind, including perpetual procrastinators like myself.)
When you’ve spent your entire life single-mindedly pursuing one goal, what happens when you finally achieve it?
For the Dragon Queen of Games of Thrones, she decides to pursue an even greater goal, refusing to take even a second to look at what she’d finally achieved.
