Entrepreneurs are as different as there are as many of them.
If you can figure out how the brain works you can build machines that work on the same principles.
When you start a new company you can’t work part time anymore.
Starting a nonprofit is just as much work as starting a for-profit business.
You have to really care about what you’re doing.
Success isn’t just about working hard, it is about making the right choices.
Involve people in your problem.
Worry about your passions. Worry about being successful at it and all kinds of good things will happen.
You can’t worry about different circumstances.
If you’re batting .300 you’re doing great on product design stuff.
If you can come up with a better solution than your competitor, and do that consistently, you’ll end with success.
