What did Alexander Hamilton mean when he said he’s not throwing away his shot?
He was referencing his life and the impact his life could have on humanity.
We all have different reasons for living, and they are all valid reasons.
The more specific you get with what you want to do with your life, at any stage of your life, helps clarify “your shot,” your vision, your dream.
Also part of what not throwing your shot away means is taking time to relax & enjoy life. Spend time with family & good friends. Learn something new. Travel. Explore. Have fun.
“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you’ll move mountains.”
— Dr. Seuss
