Focus on the Day-to-Day Work

Currently reading: Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday

  • Focus on the day-to-day details of your work, not the grand vision. 
  • Gain the discipline to make your daily commitments happen and the bigger goals will follow. 
  • Working harder and smarter than your competition beats having a bigger vision every time. 
  • Make tangible improvements each and every day. No zero days. 
  • Silicon Valley’s recent infatuation with “changing the world” is funny. That isn’t how Google, Facebook, YouTube, Dropbox, or Airbnb started. They fixed one small problem and iteratively scaled. 
  • Focus on doing your best work each day and don’t blind yourself with trying to turn into a good story.
