I’m Not An Entrepreneur (And You Might Not Be Either)

The goal isn’t to be an entrepreneur, but rather to optimize for long-term happiness.

You can’t build a life based solely on what you don’t want.

When it comes to anything in life, but especially happiness, plan to keep optimizing as you go.

When you’re choosing a career, focus on the means and the process, not just the ends.

In all decisions, prioritize growth and love over comfort.

The ideas of who we should be are what f*ck us up most.

So, do yourself a BIG favor and stop measuring yourself against other people.

Failure of imagination is the thing you are really fighting against.

And remember: there is more than one archetype in every industry.

Whatever you choose to do, don’t hold yourself in contempt.

Just own who you are and what you’re about.

THE PUNCHLINE: Your desire to be an entrepreneur is probably just a means to some other end.
