Start today

  • Take detailed notes and make a reminder if you cannot do it now.
  • The idea might vanish until tomorrow.
  • It is better to get your hands dirty right now.
  • There’s a better chance of a “snowball effect” today.

Fear is a compass

  • A crazy idea might become a successful project.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment.
  • Don’t be afraid to talk about it.

Learn at your own pace

  • The best way to learn is to get practical.
  • Don’t compare yourself with others.
