Q: What’s the one thing about yourself that you wish you could change?

A: I wish I had more discipline. I work hard, but that’s not the same thing as discipline. I tend to work hard to throw myself at the times when I’ve been undisciplined to make up for it. I’m great at “making up for it,” but that fools me into thinking that’s a fine way to live.
