You don't choose a passion, a passion chooses you

You don't choose a passion, a passion chooses you

It's very hard to make meaningful change on something you are not naturally passionate about. Your energy, focus, and resilience will be much higher, and you will be much more likely to succeed.

A passion is a gift. Use it.

Pride in Effort, Not Talent

Pride in Effort, Not Talent

Your talents are a gift, you didn't earn them.

Take pride in how you use them, not just having them.

True excellence comes from combining gifts with dedication and effort.

Put in hard work and consistent practice, and see your talents shine.

Good leaders are right a lot

Good leaders are right a lot

"Being right a lot" has nothing to do with intelligence, it's a skill that requires discipline, humility, & comfortability with looking like an idiot.

How:

  1. Listen a lot. Most of being right a lot is about gathering as much data as possible. Good leaders listen. They develop the ability to ask good questions and to challenge bias. They seek out people with different perspectives.
  2. People may say you're a fool/don't know what you're doing. To be great, you must get rid of any internal need for people to think you're smart.
  3. You must seek out info that challenge your most deeply held beliefs.

Be stubborn on vision, and flexible on details
