TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

1. We are a species of moonshots. You don’t have to aim for the moon, but aim a little higher. What you strive for becomes your ceiling.
2. Don’t fail fast. Learn fast. Ask yourself what went right and what went wrong in your failures and successes.
3. Breakthroughs are evolutionary, not revolutionary.
4. Life comes with 2 way doors. We can try something new and walk back out.
5. Stress test your ideas. The goal is not to be right, but to find what’s right.
6. Risk your significance so that what comes to you as a seed can go on as a blossom.
7. Hope for the best. Exercise your optimism muscle.
8. Ask yourself “What can I do given the hand I was dealt by the universe? How can I use my resources to solve problems that the world needs to be solved right now, instead of problems I thought I wanted to solve?” You are far more adaptable than you give yourself credit for.
9. Put yourself in the shoes of your customer. What do they see? What do they believe? What’s working and not working for them? Drop the story you’re telling yourself and look at the world from their perspective.
