Here are his teachings below;
“When something is important enough, you do it even when the odds are not in your favor.”
“Always value criticism. A well thought out critique of whatever you’re doing is as valuable as gold.”
“Whether you have a job or a business, you’re producing a product with your work. And to make your product stand out, you need to listen to feedback. You have to take your product and put it in front of knowledgeable people, and even your friends, to provide you with valuable feedback.”
“Weak people get discouraged by criticism. Strong people use it to their advantage. They take the feedback from others, see if there is any truth to it, make the improvements in their product if needed and raise their game up a notch. This is how winning is done!”
“Have Burning Passion For Your Work
If you like what you’re doing, you think about it even when you’re not working. It’s something that your mind is drawn to, and if you don’t like it, you just can’t make it work.”
“Work Like Hell”
“If other people are putting in 40-hour workweeks and you’re putting in 100-hour workweeks, then even if you’re doing the same thing, you know that you will achieve in four months what it takes them a year to achieve.”
“Live an adventure, don’t just solve Problems”
“I think it [colonizing Mars] would be the most inspiring thing that I can possibly imagine. Life needs to be more than just solving problems every day. You need to wake up and be excited about the future.”
“A lot of companies get confused. They spend money on things that don’t make the product better.”
This should encourage your standard and push you out for the game. You don’t have to give up until the final whistle which is death.
