“We were on vacation, and on every vacation to Bosnia, we do projects to help our house. Last summer, the project for our family was for me and my father in specific. We hiked to the edge of our property, to the new acres we bought and we spent the entire morning putting up stone land markers. It took hours, it was hard, sweat dribbled down my back, and both of us were extremely exhausted. By the time we were finished, a little bit over midday, I had sweated so much [that] I thought I had no moisture left in my body. I asked my dad why we were doing this, and why we exhaust ourselves every summer with these projects. All he said in response was ‘Never be comfortable for too long because comfort is where ambition goes to die.'”
