Who/what defines enough is 'you'. Learn to say 'No'. It will save us all.

The freedom of enough is the freedom to say no. No to the expected, no to the conventional, no to the “no brainers”. There’s a deep satisfaction in such “no”s that the lure of future potential just can’t match.

Ultimately, what defines enough is up to you. The paradigm shift is to decide that there is such a point, and that the point is below “all of it”.

When other people can simply do things, I have to attack it and make a plan like I am strategizing a war. It is in that lifestyle, the difference between being sick and healthy. It is the beautiful ability to not think and just do. I miss that freedom. I miss never having to count “spoons”.

I abstain from knowing the fact of something; I choose to know the reason of the fact of that thing. The latter is intentional and yields deeper understanding about a subject

Is the goal “to learn” — or is it to be intentional about what we learn? Cultivate a sense of purpose in what we choose to learn.

I was a victim of erratic learning; always interested in knowing of something and not the reason of the fact of that thing. I now abstain from this shallow knowing of things!

Ill-defined success is also a catalyst for failure.

If success is a catalyst for failure because it leads to the “undisciplined pursuit of more,” then one simple antidote is the disciplined pursuit of less

Your budget, whether time or money, should restrict but never define your scope. A large budget should define how well a problem is solved, never how many problems are tackled.

So the next time we’re looking at valuations, let’s not assume that old-world metrics are irrelevant, let’s not digest without critical thinking that “it’s a tech company that happens to make x,” let’s not assume that things are different now, or that they are the same as always.
