Marketing’s turn?

Today the news reached me – Bill Campbell passed away three days ago.

When I work with startups, the last thing I work with them on is marketing. I don’t want to overestimate marketing. Apple’s marketing is having great products. – Bill Campbell

You will be missed, Bill.

The first dip might be the hardest

Reading through Kant’s writings is hard initially. Students stop because they find his clumsy writing style too hard to understand.

If they wouldn’t have let the first few pages stop them, they would have found out that there are parts in which Kant repeats himself – this is where his ideas become easy to understand.

Many things in our daily life are like this.

Willing to die for it

In times of despair and doubt, supreme confidence and faith shine the brightest.

When everyone doubts and everything falls apart, you need to stand certain as a rock. Every. Single. Person. In. The. Room. Will. Notice. It. – Every. Single. One.

Pick a worthwhile goal carefully, and then, be willing to die for it.

Turning your ENTIRE life around

Everything affects everything else.

Turning your life around starts with the smallest discipline.

It can start with eating an apple a day. It can start with planning the next day on paper. It can start with reading the first book. It can start with waking up half an hour earlier. It can start with going around the block for your health. It can start with, “Hey, I know our lives are not that great, and I wonder what we could do to change that.”

That small discipline you pick up today will inspire you to pick up the next and the next and soon, the disciplines that seemed so hard, in the beginning, are now part of your life.
