Some things I believe


  • Be patient with outcomes, good things take time and you need to earn the right to win (h/t @varunshenoy_). If you want to win, you need an edge. Never expect or assume you will win. The opportunity to build something people care about and use is a privilege, treat it with the respect it deserves.

  • We treat our parents significantly worse than they deserve to be treated. We take them for granted way more than we should.

  • Nutrition and physical fitness is very important. People spend more time thinking about external inputs than what they put in and how they treat their own bodies.

  • It is very hard to accomplish anything truly great if you’re high ego. You will be wrong often and that means you need to be open and humble enough to accept that.

  • If you want to make progress quickly, figure out how to create as tight of a feedback loop as possible.

  • There are many good qualities you can have, but earnestness, resourcefulness, agency, and curiosity are rare nowadays.

  • Steal like an artist, but always give credit where credit is due

  • It’s better to actually try something out than spend a lot of time thinking about it.

  • Details are revealed when you start doing something, not before

  • Loneliness is probably the worst thing in the world.

  • Courage is more scarce and important than intelligence.

  • You are allowed to just do things.

  • Chasing status is almost always a bad idea.

  • Confidence and arrogance is a fine line, and it is better to err on the side of humility than arrogance. You may initially get less recognition but you will attract the best type of people and this is what matters.

  • Having fun is a great way to make you like working hard.

  • Most advice is pretty bad and almost always self-directed.

  • If untested, assume it’s broken.

  • Respect your heroes, but don’t put anyone on a pedestal, everyone is human and they will disappoint you.

  • Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re probably right.
