Things we’re thinking about this week.
Persist and Resist.
Two words I’ve been thinking a lot. If we boil it all down, these are the two things that matter the most. These words come in many forms (grittiness seems to be the hot one these days), and ring especially true for anyone attempting something new or different.
Persist - you just have to keep going. If you believe what you’re doing is right, you have to keep going (not just for entrepreneurs, but anyone attempting something new/different in their lives). It doesn’t get easier, it might change over time. It doesn’t matter. If it matters to you, you have to keep working on it.
Resist - the temptation is real. The cushy, easy job is always available. But you have to remember why you’re pursuing the path you’re currently on. Doing the ‘typical’ job isn’t good enough. Taking the easy way out and never taking a risk just doesn’t cut it.
Persist and Resist. That’s all there is to it.
