David Bowie said that about himself.
I like it very much, in a creative, economic, social, and personal way.
Creativity requires a curiosity, and hard work, and a focus on the art.
Economically, it requires the ability to earn enough to live a healthy life style.
Socially, it requires a commitment to family, friends, followers, fans, fashion, the future, fame and fortune.
Personally, I am working to grow in a healthy way that will help me, family, friends and community.
So, if it sounds selfish, it is because I have omitted the other half of the equation.
To help others, I need to live a good life, harm less, and practice the proper use of impressions.
