This is too good not to have its own post. In a Zoom interview for Sirius XM back in late May, Howard Stern asked Jerry Seinfeld if it is possible to will yourself to get better at something, e.g. your craft, your life, etc. Both men had just watched The Last Dance docu-series about Michael Jordan, and Howard felt that he had consciously willed himself to become a better talk show host. Here’s Jerry’s response, which is for the ages:

I’m going to adjust your perspective a little bit here. That was not will. What you were using, what Michael Jordan uses, what I use, it’s not will. It’s love. When you love something, it’s a bottomless pool of energy. That’s where the energy comes from, but you have to love it, sincerely — not because you’re going to make money from it or be famous or get whatever you want to get. When you do it because you love it, then you can find yourself moving up and getting really good at something you wanted to be good at. Will is like not eating dessert or something that is just forcing yourself. You can’t force yourself to do — to be — what you have made yourself into. You can love it. Love is endless. Will is finite.
