Throughout my career, I was never able to relax; I always had to go on the field with another responsibility. I felt like I was playing, not just for my team, but for my race.
More live recording. I have missed the boat over my career by not doing every second or third CD live because things happen onstage that don’t happen in the studio.
Lithium prevents my seductive but disastrous highs, diminishes my depressions, clears out the wool and webbing from my disordered thinking, slows me down, gentles me out, keeps me from ruining my career and relationships, keeps me out of a hospital, alive, and makes psychotherapy possible.
A high school diploma will no longer be sufficient. But that post secondary education does not have to be a four-year university or a four-year college. It can be career technical education, vocational education, community college.

It’s only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home – it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love.
It is possible to have a pretty good life and career being a leech and a parasite in the media world, gadding about from TV studio to TV studio, writing inconsequential pieces and having a good time.
While working hard for my career, I looked after my family and have been there for my mother and in-laws when they needed me around. They reciprocated in kind with their unconditional love and support for my career.
I have played a lot of roles in my career where I’m the sexual interest. I’m always having to fight that.

I would love to be able to pursue music as a career but honestly, I’m just not good enough.
I’ve been in a poor physical shape many times in my career and I’ve had some of my best results. My best performances happened because my mind was in the right place. The mind is definitely stronger than the body.

What I learned from architectural drafting is that everything has to have a plan to work. You just can’t wing it. I can’t get all the materials I need for a house and just start building. Whether it’s a career, family, life – you have to plan it out.
In my career, there’s many things I’ve won and many things I’ve achieved, but for me, my greatest achievement is my children and my family. It’s about being a good father, a good husband, just being connected to family as much as possible.
I’ve been playing both sides of the law my entire career. It’s not really surprising for me to be doing opposing sides simultaneously. I would argue that even though my character on ‘Hawaii Five-0′ originated on the wrong side of the law, I’d say he’s worked his way over to the good side.
I had a really great experience so far with film acting. And most experiences from most actors, I’ve heard, are not like this. But I want a career that has many disciplines and many options.

I was told at first that being different was a bad thing. Everywhere I went, it was just, ‘You’re too different’… And it turned out that being different was the best thing that ever happened to my career. It is why people travel to my shows. It’s why people want to hear my story and buy my book.
I just appreciate still having the longevity that I’ve had in my career.
My mother insisted that I pursue music. I rented out my father’s musical equipment and earned some money. As a child, I wasn’t sure about a career goal, but I was always fascinated by electronic gadgets, specially musical equipment.
‘True Detective‘ did change my career.
Andre Agassi was my rival in the ’90s, and I think as we got older we sort of transcended the game. He was probably the best player I ever played over my career. There’s a list of players that were tough, but Andre, certainly, he was the most unique.
Maybe at this stage in my career, it’s from that younger generation that I have most to learn.
For some reason, every time I peak in my career, I injure myself. So, I’m constantly on the comeback trail.

I think everybody has a moment in their career where you have to test whether it was right or wrong. We’ve all been there.

I want the public to know that it will be an honor for me to meet them and spend a few special moments with all those who helped me through my filmed career.
When my record company rejected ‘Full Moon Fever‘, I was hurt so bad. I was pretty far along in my career at that point. I’d never had anything rejected; I’d never really even had a comment. So when that happened, it was really just a board to the forehead. But then, finally, I picked myself up.
I just want to be the best that I can be, and I’m focusing on my own career.
If Barbara Walters was interviewing me, I’d figure her career was as dead as mine!
One could make money and get a career going with a low-budget horror film about killers attacking on holidays. It is always flattering to have somebody copy you.

Everyone wants to be an arena act, and it’s making country music evolve. People are cutting things more for that arena environment.

I think there is an enormous sea change happening in the global workforce. It has a lot to do with globalization. I think that people used to have a hope for a career or meaningful employment, and its been reduced to internships, part-time work or just grossly underpaid work.
The GRAMMY was a huge deal. It’s the height of any musical career.
I’m not dating anyone until I get my career where I want it to be.
I guess my music career is my personal life. You know, I’ve always been a writer who wants to write about my experiences. And so this experience being added to that, I – I want to live extraordinary experiences. And when I give advice to people, I want it to be sage advice.
It doesn’t matter if you’re doing a studio movie or you’re doing an independent movie. When you get to set and you’re doing a scene, it’s always going to be the same job. I really don’t think about my career, in terms of planning it out and what this does for me.
My career has been very spaced out.
My whole career has been trying to please people in basketball. Now it’s time to please myself.
