I just finished reading Phil Knight's autobiography "Shoe Dog." In the last five pages, he shares what I believe to be the most inspiring words of the 380 page book. It is aimed for Millennials specifically. After finishing the book, I sent that advice on to my 20-something sons.

But I don't believe his thinking is reserved for Millennials only. In fact, it makes no difference whether you're a Boomer, Gen Xer, Millennial or Gen Yer, because you will find a spark from the Nike titan's narrative that might guide your life for the rest of your days. 

I’d tell young people not to settle for a job or a professional or even a career. Seek a calling. Even if you don’t know what that means seek it. If you’re following your calling, the fatigue will be easier to bear, the disappointments will be fuel, the highs will be like nothing you’ve ever felt.”

- Phil Knight, Nike Founder
