Peterson is brilliant. Been listening to/reading him for years.
We all know there are creative geniuses in their bedrooms who will never "amount to anything" professionally... that in no way reduces their talent or level of creativity, it simply means they do not have what it takes to, or do not want to, do the rest of the work that it takes to make it a "living." And that's fine. Some of the most impressive musicianship I have ever heard/seen has been on YouTube, by people who are incredibly talented, but no one has ever, and likely never will, know about them.
I don't think anyone mentioned "making it." Because of course, that would be something different to each person. There's certainly nothing "lazy" about Peterson's mind, lol.I would argue the concept of "making it" to be a massive flaw in the logic of gurus who try to preach.
Just sticking to music/art, I'd say the vast majority of those I know who try to attain their highest personal levels not only couldn't give a damn about "making it," "making it" was never an option. Injecting ape hierarchy into everyone else is for lazy minds.
