Focus on the long-term horizon & the short term obstacles are inconsequential.

it takes years to cultivate entrepreneur skills, DON’T WORRY

Over the years, I have messed up enough for one lifetime.  I’ve been fortunate enough to meet great leaders, managers and coaches - all who shared their ideas, best practices and philosophies with me. 

Building your tool kit

I have learned that there is not a single answer, but rather a diverse tool kit that needs to be developed. perhaps even more importantly - those tools need to be applied at particular stages of the company when most appropriate.

There is a great HBR article that references management is like playing golf - you pull out a Driver for a long-shot and putter for another type of shot.  They key to management is - Do you have the requisite tools? and.. do you know when to use them? Don’t pull out a Driver for a putt.

If it excites you and scares you at the same time, it probably means you should do it!
