Productivity & Work

Into the Jungle

Goals create focus. But those same goals can also crimp the pursuit.

Instead of focusing on the goal, focus on the process.

Instead of relentlessly pursuing positivity, happily chase failure.

A real goal is one that’s doom to fail. It probably is impossible. But no one succeeds in their first try. Life is a game of increments.


Skip progress and perfection and embrace process and uncertainty. Show up everyday, do the work, and ship it if it’s good enough. Keep the practice of patience and success will meet you on the other side.
