“I would’ve given up had I not been driven by a force that was not my own.”

— Mitch Albom

Before best-selling author Mitch Albom was a successful sports writer, he was a musician in New York City. After answering an ad in the newspaper for writer, his journalism career began. In this episode, Brian Buffini interviews Mitch to learn about his story, from the beginning of his journalism career taking whatever assignments he could find to reconnecting with his former professor, Morrie Schwartz, and spending time with him each week, in what would eventually become the best-seller, “Tuesdays with Morrie.” Mitch delves into his perspective on the current dynamics of the sports and news industries and shares his secret to getting started in any industry, why it’s essential to be ambitious for the right reasons and how reconnecting with his mentor changed his life forever. By the end of the episode, you’ll have a renewed perspective on life.

 

Inspirational quotes from today’s interview:

“You absorb creativity by observing it.” — Mitch Albom

“How do you get started? Get busy” — Mitch Albom

“I was blessed to have death come into my life at a young age. Watching Morrie die in front of me and seeing what was important to him and what wasn’t important to him was the greatest gift I could have had at that young age.” — Mitch Albom

“He was so full of love and light. I said I want to be like this.” — Mitch Albom

“I would’ve given up had I not been driven by a force that was not my own.” — Mitch Albom

“Ambition by itself is not bad. It’s when it becomes the only thing you focus on. You have to separate the ambitious act from the ambitious emotion.” — Mitch Albom

“You’re not getting to know the athlete; you’re getting to know the image of the athlete.” — Mitch Albom

“Writing is the last refuge of sports.” — Mitch Albom

“We live in the world of clicks now.” — Mitch Albom

“Giving is living. Taking only makes you feel like your time is limited. Giving makes you feel more alive.” — Morrie Schwartz
