Hmmmm, there are a lot of recovering "high achievers" who thought their self-worth was dependent on their achievements, so I don't personally resonate with FDR's first point, but I fully embrace his second, about the joy of feeling the thrill of the creative effort. Creative being define as anything that expresses the uniqueness of the individual :)
