Put your ideas to the torture test; Thrash the shit out of them and see if they still work. Create a disagree and commit kind of culture.

Strong views, loosely held.
Don’t overestimate the people on pedestals, get inside the heads of people who made things in the past and what they were actually like and realize that they’re not that different from you, at the time they got started. In other words, don’t compare someone’s step 20 with your step 2.

Rules to live by:
1) Be so good they can’t ignore you
2) Smart people should make things.

Ideal day: 10 hours on caffeine and 4 on alcohol.



Go do interesting things.
