Step into fear to accelerate your growth. Dream big to achieve extraordinary things. Confidently connect to experts. Pour your heart and soul into what you do, working with a sense of purpose and determination. Execute like a professional whether you feel like it or not. Own your flaws as much as your strengths. Always commit before you are ready. Speak up, saying what needs to be said. Never give up.
It is not the big that beat the small, but the fast that beat the slow. Prioritise speed over precision, focusing on the 20% of effort that will drive 80% of the results. Build a world-class team of autonomous people who get stuff done – and who systematize and automate wherever possible. Strive for simplicity, asking often ‘How are we making this too difficult?” Celebrate execution and respect deadlines. Done is better than perfect.
Enjoy the process and celebrate the wins along the way. Choose happiness and optimism, spreading positivity to others. Relax, smile, love and laugh. Don’t take things too seriously and be sure to stop to smell the roses.
