I'm 29 years old. Every time I start to think, “this is it… I've finally reached it.” I realize I'm only on the 3rd rung of a 20 foot ladder.
Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.
Success comes slow. Let's learn to focus on the ride. From the napkin sketches and the filing of our first business license to the magazine interview and even a memorable failure. Pinnacle business success takes time and even if we never reach the top rung, the memories are what matter most.
The video below was a stark reminder to slow down. My time is not fading. My clock is not ending. Let us relax, focus on the immediate, and hope for the long game.
How did this video make you feel? What would you like to accomplish by the age of 80? Let me know in the comments below.
Some know me as a serial entrepreneur and Founder of Sevenly and StartupCamp, others know me as the guy who can ride a unicycle and still kickflip on a skateboard. I’m on a mission to inspire people. Will you join me?
