1. Disrupt yourself before someone else comes along and does it.

    — Brian Fitzpatrick

  2. Write down every single idea you have, no matter how big or small.

  3. People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done.

    — Steve Jobs, on focus.

  4. The key to success is to never stop learning. Never stop pushing the boundaries. Never get too comfortable in your current position. If you aren’t learning something new or creating something new…it is time to move on.
