3 IDEAS FROM ME

I.

“The hardest part of solving a problem is accurately defining it.”


II.

“Before you dream about the view from the summit, ask yourself if you're willing to keep your head down, focus on the path, and spend your life walking up the side of a very big hill.

It takes years of walking to earn a minute at the top.”


III.

“Hard work is not always something you can see. It is not always physical effort.

In fact, the most powerful form of hard work is thinking clearly. Designing a winning strategy may not look very active, but make no mistake: it is very hard work.

Strategy often beats sweat.”
