Being Van Cliburn
"An artist can be truly evaluated only after he is dead. At the very 11th hour, he might do something that will eclipse everything else."
This is the ever-evolving process of a great artist, the expectation of creating something greater still. Can the same be said of other professions? I can see this mindset in scientists and engineers. Are there others? Many of us have become merely satisfied with ourselves in our professions.
