Collaboration is a mindset not just a set of tools you use.


So many people prevent themselves from sharing their greatness with the world because they are paralyzed by fear of what other people will think.


Your own work ethic and that of the people around you need to match. If they don't, it'll make it harder to get alignment.


The most difficult part of sales and marketing is getting used to the grind. Doing the same set of things over and over and over again. Sometimes with such mediocre results that you think about giving up right before striking gold.

#creation vs consumption

The simpler something feels to use, the harder it was to create. It took more time and debates for the maker(s) to get it right. That’s why you shouldn’t study makers to imitate their creations. Study makers to figure out how they make things.


No two people experience life in the same way. That’s why it’s important to not force your opinions upon others. Whatever resonates gets picked up. The rest, at best goes in one ear and out the other. Be mindful of how you share your opinions.

#time management

Think something is hard? It's because you haven't done it before. Not because it's actually hard. What was once hard becomes easy with time.


It’s easier than ever to build software. Now, in just a few hours, you can create something that used to take specialized skills and countless days. This is all because of the "no code" tools that let you do so much without writing a single line of code.


Don’t always believe what you think. Your mind is probably playing tricks on you.


The biggest opportunities for growth are often disguised as pain.


The ability to delay gratification and strong impulse control are crucial startup skills that now apply to just about everyone.


The larger an organization gets, the harder it is to know what’s happening and who’s doing what. This problem is currently unsolved.
