The Growth Paradox: Growth takes a much longer time coming than you think, and then it happens much faster than you would have thought. It happens gradually, then suddenly. When you realize this, you start to do things differently.

Optimize Value Capture “Opportunities come infrequently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thimble." Create structures that enable you to capture more of the value you create. The most successful people have simply optimized their value capture mechanisms.

Make Time Your Friend “Time is the friend of the wonderful business, the enemy of the mediocre.” Don’t be in a rush. Set up your life to compound value over the long-term. Play long-term games with long-term people. Make time work for - not against - you.

Protect Your Circle of Competence “Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.” Be ruthlessly honest about what you know (your circle of competence) and what you don’t. Focus on playing games within your circle - otherwise, you’re just gambling.

Never Get Caught Naked “It's only when the tide goes out that you discover who's been swimming naked.” Find a balance between pushing yourself for growth and being completely out of your depth. Never put yourself in a high-stakes position to get caught swimming naked.

Reputation Matters “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.” In every interaction - big or small - always act in accordance with strong principles and values. Your character is your fate.

Invest In Yourself “The most important investment you can make is in yourself." There is no better investment than an investment in yourself. Find time to read, to think, to learn. Surround yourself with amazing people who push you to become better. Invest in you.
