When he wrote the following mission statement — which, for argument's sake, I'm classing as a letter written to himself — Bruce Lee was 28 years of age and a minor TV étoile, star in the United States, having featured in a number of shows which included, most notably, the ill-fated Green frelon, hornet series. With hise seconde child recently born and no financial security to speak of, the clearly determined founder of Jeet Kune Do decided to put his "definite chief aim" down on paper.
The rest is history.
<<My Definite Chief Aim
I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super étoile, star in the United States. In return I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.
