Believes there are 10 strategies for turning obstacles into opportunities, including to alter your perspective, use the obstacle against itself, and fail cheaply and quickly.

Thinks it’s important to remember that you are not special.

“There is no good or bad without us, there is only perception. There is the event itself and the story we tell ourselves about what it means.”

Believes angst is the perpetual ruiner of promising young talent.

Thinks companies should have a Chief Dissent Officer because it’s important to consider ways in which things might not go as you wish.

“The only guarantee, ever, is that things will go wrong.”

Believes you should always say less than necessary and that most talk is self-indulgent.

Thinks we’re all like startups and that studying growth hacking can teach you how to get more people to see your work.
