This is the gift and the challenge entrepreneurs face every day.

The companies we dream of and build from scratch are part of us and intensely personal.

They are our families. Our lives.

But the entrepreneurial journey is not for everyone.

Yes, the highs are high and the rewards can be thrilling.
But the lows can break your heart.

But doing anything else, we think, would be unimaginable ”

“ In a startup, it doesn’t matter if you’re 100 percent right 100 percent of the time.

What matters is having forward momentum and a tight fact-based data/metrics feedback loop to help you quickly recognize and reverse any incorrect decisions.

That’s why startups are agile.

By the time a big company gets the committee to organize the subcommittee to pick a meeting date, your startup could have made 20 decisions, reversed five of them and implemented the fifteen that worked. ”

“ Live your passion.

What does that mean, anyway?

It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world.

You don’t live for vacations because you don’t need a break from what you’re doing—working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same.

You don’t even pay attention to how many hours you’re working because to you, it’s not really work.

You’re making money, but you’d do whatever it is you’re doing for free. ”

“ You’re going to go through a time where you’re not going to make any money.

It’s not going to be a week, it’s not going to be a month, it’s not going to be one year.

It’s going to be years.

And during that time, if you don’t love what you do, it’s going to be very hard to stick it out.

That is something that people don’t understand when they hear, “Follow your passion”

They hear rainbows, unicorns, bullshit.

But the truth of it is that it’s important, because if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, you’re going to be that much more likely to quit when shit’s hard. ”

I had to learn the skills I needed and become competent enough to match my confidence, but the thing that surprises me the most is learning that it’s not about how much you know; it’s about how much you care.

“ People are usually astonished when a brand puts in extra effort to make them happy.

That’s how rarely it happens, and that’s where you, whether you’re an entrepreneur or a big business, can separate yourself from the rest of the pack.

Guinness created the Guinness Book of World Records to reinforce its brand and give people something to talk about in the pubs.

Similarly, I predict that one day a brand like Nike could put out its own sports programming and compete successfully against ESPN, or Amtrak could launch a publication that could stand up to Travel + Leisure. ”

“ As anyone who starts a business knows, it is a fantastic race.

There is a statistic that hangs over your head - over 90 percent of all new businesses fail in the first three years.

For anyone with even a bit of competitive spirit in them, especially for someone who defines himself or herself as an entrepreneur, these overwhelming odds of failure are not intimidating, they only add fuel to the fire.

The foolishness of thinking that you're a part of the small minority of those who actually will make it past three years and defy the odds is part of what makes entrepreneurs who they are, driven by passion and completely irrational. ”

“ Why have so many schools reduced the time and emphasis they place on art, music, and physical education?

The answer is beyond simple: those areas aren’t measured on the all-important tests.

You know where those areas are measured… in life!

Art, music, and a healthy lifestyle help us develop a richer, deeper, and more balanced perspective.

Never before have we needed more of an emphasis on the development of creativity, but schools have gone the exact opposite direction in an effort to make the best test-taking automatons possible.

Our economy no longer rewards people for blindly following rules and becoming a cog in the machine.

We need risk-takers, outside-the-box thinkers, and entrepreneurs; our school systems do the next generation a great disservice by discouraging these very skills and attitudes. Instead of helping and encouraging them to find and develop their unique strengths, they're told to shut up, put the cell phones away, memorize these facts and fill in the bubbles. ”
