Focus on something that has high value to someone else, be really rigorous in making that assessment, because natural human tendency is wishful thinking, so the challenge to entrepreneurs is telling what’s the difference between really believing in your ideals and sticking to them as opposed to pursuing some unrealistic dream that doesn’t actually have merit, be very rigorous in your self analysis, certainly being extremely tenacious, and just work like hell. Put in 80-100 hours every week. All these things improve the odds of success.

In the final forty-five years of his life, Salinger did not publish any new material, despite reportedly writing every day. That’s right, he wrote things without immediately sharing them with the world, and I’ll give you a moment to tweet how strange that is.
