Success is not a goal

"I just ran across this quote from one of my favorite musicians and Washington D.C. native Ian MacKaye:

'The first time I played a bass, I was successful. Success is not a goal. Success is in the doing. Always.'

"I think that describes Shikantaza pretty well (even though it is beyond success and failure)."
