Do not give up

We live in a "startup" world.
We are bombed with news about Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook and Android... all growing at embarassing rates and earning millions of dollars. This is ok but... it's not the real world. It's a tiny lucky fraction.

For the rest of the world (and for the rest of the world I mean: "everyone", 99.9999999% of the persons) working hard and staying at it is foundamental. The good part is that you can easily avoid failure, especially when botting: do not give up after 3 weeks, don't get discouraged, insist, iterate and learn from your errors. Stay up late at night, prepare yourself a good coffee, wake up early in the morning.

If you want to be successful, get ready for a lot of long days followed by long nights. I really like the mantra from Jason Fried and 37 Signals. He has a smallish company, 20 or so people that profits Millions per year, and that’s my goal for my companies, but here’s one thing I just found out about how to get there… Stay at it: everyday you continue to build things, the closer you get to a kick-ass, super-profitable business empire.
