Quote du Jour: On Exiting High-End Activities

My favorite quote today comes from a Financial Times lunch interview with ex-tennis player Andre Agassi:

Retirement from tennis must have left a gap in his life, I say. “No,” he insists. “I tell you the area where I have struggled the most: not being able to look at my year and understand it in full context of how this year is going to play out. I used to know where I was going to be 10 years in advance. Now I don’t know where I’m going to be in two weeks. And I’m used to that mindset. So that I miss.”

Fascinating.
