Enthusiastic resolve

(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska –
“…the public has been hoodwinked into believing that being good at what you like to do is of great consequence. It’s not. Enthusiasm is a lot more important than skill.” – Bill Heavey

Bill Heavey writes the back page column for Field and Stream Magazine and is a true wordsmith. It took me all of a page and a half to find a column-worthy quote in his newest book, “You’re not lost if you can still see the Truck.”
It isn’t just a good quote, it’s an integral quote — a necessary collection of words which properly articulates one of the most important aspects of life. A life void of some sort of enthusiasm discourages growth and can lead to stagnancy.
When you’re good at something, it’s easy to be enthusiastic. At least, that’s what I assume, since I am relentlessly average at everything except staring at a blank computer screen and putting off my column until the last minute. But I’m fine with that.
