TMM: Four minutes of David Foster Wallace brilliance

David Foster Wallace. Writer. Teacher. A rare intellectual. But all these pale when compared to his tremendous insight into what it means to be human. The things that are so obvious we don’t even notice them.

This short video is him explaining ambition, perfectionism, and the level of dedication required to be successful in any given field. Quite remarkable.
