How much time do you spend thinking about why you shouldn’t start creating something new instead of just doing it? How many statements of disqualification do you listen to everyday?

I first heard of this contrast between a Mercenary and a Missionary from Mike Rowe-Dirty Jobs .  I find it fascinating. Mercenary-Paid to fight, without the requirement of involving their heart.
