In our culture, artistic genius and poverty seem inevitably linked, but does it have to be that way? Jim Henson didn't…
This book has one of the most sobering accounts of the consequences that being a workaholic has on your family life. The reactions of Jim Henson’s family after his death are deeply saddening.

So I agree with your assessment, Thomas.
I think the importance lies in being focused, and the danger lies in being obsessed.
