Greatness – What about it?
Once we accomplished that greatness, what do we do of it?
Do we search for a greater height of greatness?
Once we were great high schoolers. Then we planned for med school.
We do great in med school. Then we plan for graduate medical education.
We do great as junior doctors. We choose specialty.
We are great specialists. We upgrade our ranks (senior registrar à junior consultants à senior consultants à department chief à dean of medicine) or perhaps leave for private practice.
Then we resign… and die eventually. Where is the greatness that we felt?
I’m unsure what defines us; the greatness we accomplished or the journey we took in between?
p/s: A little philosophical today because I’ve kept thinking why ex-captain Aizen Sosuke who absconded Gotei 13 chose a different path to achieve greatness, leaving his fellow captains behind. Maybe I’m on sugar high? Nyeh nyeh… 😉
