If everyone has a calling, what’s yours? And the bigger question: through so much noise and distraction, will you answer it? Bob Dylan weighs in.
Mikal Gilmore: You’ve described what you do not as a career but as a calling.
Everybody has a calling, don’t they? … Everybody is called but few are chosen. There is a lot of distraction for people, so you might not never find the real you. A lot of people don’t.
Mikal Gilmore: How would you describe your calling?
Mine? Not any different than anybody else’s. Some people are called to be a good sailor. Some people have a calling to be a good tiller of the land. Some people are called to be a good friend. You have to be the best at whatever you are called at. Whatever you do. You ought to be the best at it — highly skilled. It’s about confidence, not arrogance. You have to know that you’re the best whether anybody else tells you that or not.
