Paul Buchheit on the death of his brother

Paul’s post is incredibly touching and beautifully written. The following lines stood out to me –

On a more practical level, what matters most in our day-to-day lives is that we’re good to ourselves and to each other.

What’s most important is that we are good too each other, and ourselves. If we “win”, but have failed to do that, then we have lost. Winning is nothing.

Ultimately, the people who learn to love what they do who will be the ones who accomplish the most anyway. Those who push only for the sake of some future reward, or to avoid failure, very often burn out, sometimes tragically. Please don’t do that.
