Doing Anything Worthwhile Takes Time

90% of what separates successful people and failed people is time, effort, and stamina.

If somebody in your industry is more successful than you, it’s probably because he works harder at it than you do. Sure, maybe he’s more inherently talented, more adept at networking, but I don’t consider that an excuse. Over time, that advantage counts for less and less. This is why the world is full of highly talented, network-savvy, failed mediocrities.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME BOOK

It just has to be yours. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing. 

You don't have to ignore all people, at all times, forever. No, other people’s feedback plays a very important role. 

If your business plan depends on suddenly being “discovered” by some big shot, your plan will probably fail. Most of the things are made slowly and with a lot of work.

The more original your idea is, the less good advice other people will be able to give you.

There is no correlation between the two.

And not eveybody will have the same agenda as you: When your idea seems to be working, sometimes you’ll find all these people trying to join the team, trying to get a piece of the action. 

If you were to start out writing for example (or maybe an online retail business) don't just quit your job in order to make this big, dramatic, event around it.

Don't stress too much about things like “writer's block.” If you’re looking at a blank piece of paper and nothing comes to you, then go do something else.
