Go Farther, 
Go Further
Go Harder
Is that not why we came?
If not, then why bother?

Mr Carter by Lil'Wayne

This post was inspired by Sir Abe. His rap references on this site got me in that frame of mind.

I am a fan of rap music and poetry. When I want to hit the gym or do something that involves butterflies, I have an awesome rap playlist that gets me in the mood.  

Rap music is hypnotic. It draws you in, building on the anticipation of where it is going - then the punchline is delivered perfectly.  
Often I can't get away before hearing the whole message. Then I hit repeat - I need to hear that delivery one more time.

Just like Game Of Thrones hijacks the globe every Sunday night, when creativity is done right, it is a FEAST to the senses.

So as I blast my rap music and write my post, I think -
WHY not GOTify writing here? 
Raise the bar. 
Double down on the creativity.
Go all out with the vulnerability. 
Get loud on the punchline. 

The goal? 

Making the reader hungry for more. 

Is that not why we came?
If not, then why bother?
