  • Anybody who puts they time in over a succession of years is on their way to mastery at something. That’s an exciting and true proposition.
  • I think it’s critical to slow down for a second and R&D instead of continually just repeating the development wheel we’ve already adopted.
  • What an awesome wild west it is right now to be able to invest stuff, at one point you had to be a Googler or a Microspfter to able to do big things, but that is no longer the case.
  • If you have the right tools you could be on a ranch, on top of a mountain or on a tropical island. Doesn't matter.
