I’ve never told people how I feel about them. I’ve never told my best friends how much they mean to me. I’ve never asked that girl out. I’ve never told my mentors how much I respect them. I’ve never told family how much I love them. I’ve never told my colleagues how much I’ve learnt from them. Perhaps, I never will.
Don’t dream about being an overnight success. Unless you have at least a decade to play with. Because every overnight success takes about 10 years of pre-game work. The thing is, it’s easy to find startups who shot to fame in 6–12 months, but they are the exception. And you, you bright little snowflake, are the rule.
