“Perfectionism and procrastination have such a fine line. You say, ‘Well I want it to be good. I want it to be perfect.’ But what you’re really doing is not doing your work. You’re putting off showing up and being visible because then you’re going to be judged and it might suck.”
“The more you like yourself, the better you do. And the better you do, the more you like yourself. The more you like yourself, the more you persist, the more committed you are, the more determined you are. And that leads to better results.”
“Small steps forward can lead to a successful outcome long-term. So a scrappy strategy encompasses all of your efforts. It’s research; it’s due diligence; it’s sweat equity. And [scrappiness] helps you to channel all of these things together in the most productive direction.”
