Thoughts on business, entrepreneurship, and life from a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and writer.
Agreed.I think you can even take it a step further, though:"Remember what you were doing ten years ago? Kinda embarrassing right? Make decisions with a thought to the long term (ie where do I want to be in ten years) to avoid working against yourself."
Joel Osteen says there are 5 minute problems, 5 month problems, and 5 year problems ... the goal is to figure out in 5 seconds what is which and move forward. (not an exact quote and I think I even said it better myself just now)... anyway, someone cut you off in traffic, 5 minute problem ... change your hair color to something you don't like, 5 month problem ... diagnosed with Cancer ... that could be a 5 year problem. No matter the problem though, you can handle it and time will keep on keeping on. It's best to see every problem as a 5 minute problem because that's about the extent of our attention spans anyhow. Even a 5 year problem can be broken down into 5 minute problems which mean nothing 10 minutes later.
Wow, this really is a good thought to ponder over. :)Thanks, Chris.
