You don’t have to be right.
You don’t have to know how to build a business to build one.
You don’t have to know the best way to write in order to start writing.
You don’t have to understand life to live it.
Often, we confuse achievement with understanding.
We want to be right. And we assume that being right equals being successful.
We assume we need to know before we can do it. After all, that’s how we were taught.
You can be both, of course: right and successful.
But you also can get lost in trying to be right. And end up not doing anything.
Instead of trying to understand how to write, write.
Instead of trying to understand how to build a business, start one.
And instead of trying to understand how to live, just live.
Among the millions of insights I had in 2020, this is probably the most profound one.
