Kort men fin intervju med Anthony Seldon i FT. Texten etablerar tidigt att vederbörande skrivit över 40 böcker, men hans svar indikerar att han tycker att alla dessa är oviktiga, och att hela hans sinnestillstånd verkar tyngas av att hans fru gått bort i cancer.
What would you like to own that you don’t currently possess?
Ambition or talent: which matters more to success?
Both, though ambition is more important. Throughout my life, I’ve been astonished by people who’ve been talented and not risen far, and the ambitious who’ve got to the top.
What is the greatest achievement of your life so far?
My children. A very happy marriage. I don’t think I’ve done anything else that is important.
If you had to rate your satisfaction with your life so far, out of 10, what would you score?
Five. I worked too hard at the wrong things and not hard enough at the things that really matter. But I have time to correct that.
