Key Ideas

Knowing Success

Justin Kan is a mid-30s entrepreneur who sold his previous startup, Twitch, to Amazon for $1 billion, and has raised millions in VC funding for his current project, the legal startup Atrium.

Work With The Right People

Success might boil down to whom you are working with.

Having the right people around you is more important than even having the right idea or the right kind of resources.

Don't Give Up

Lasting success comes with time and perseverance.

Goals Keep Getting Bigger

Your goals will just keep getting bigger and bigger. Don't stop, don't settle and keep achieving.

Achievement is Fickle

Achieving Goals does not give any lasting happiness, just a temporary satisfaction.

Anxiety Is a Constant Companion

Anxiety and Fear are not situational and occasional but can be a constant state of mind.

Learn to cope with them.

Meditation With Your Fear

Instead of escaping or shying away from your fears using TV or alcohol, you can sit with your fears in meditation.

Don't Try To Attract People

Instead of trying to attract people towards you, just be naturally vulnerable and curious.

Lasting Happiness

Lasting happiness comes from gratitude, connecting with other people and liberation from your self-tortured striving.

Feelings are preceded by emotions and tend to be our reactions to them. Emotions are a more generalized experience across humans, but feelings are more subjective and influenced by our personal experiences and interpretations, thus they are harder to measure.
