To an entrepreneur, every day is a crisis. — Phillip Knight, Nike

Principles I’ve thought about during the last month, all in consideration:

  1. I cannot change things that I tolerate, in both business and personal lives.
  2. Certain things in life cannot be taught, they can only be learned.
  3. Fear is a gift. It’s nature’s way of keeping me alert.
  4. Fear is an acronym of FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL.
  5. When in fear, I must find out if others have experienced similar fear and what they did to overcome them.
  6. There is no trust or safety where there are unanswered questions.
  7. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain by educating myself.
  8. I have to dig the well before I’m thirsty.
  9. I must give without the expectation or attachment of getting anything in return.
  10. I must not keep the score.
  11. When feeling down, work is the ultimate distraction.
  12. Detachment is not that I own nothing, detachment is that nothing owns me.
  13. I get what I put in.
  14. Marketplace always pays for valuable skill.

Further question to ask myself:

  1. Do I want that process or do I want the result?
  2. Do I live in the perception of a perception of myself?
