Take advantage of every moment.
Do not waste a second.
Even if doing nothing, do it intentionally, consciously, and deliberately.
Busyness without focus is procrastination.
Make a plan. Make a decision. Take action.
Mistakes will be made. Try anyway.
Failure is inevitable. Failure is a teacher.
Learn to pivot. Make a new path. Make your own path.
Move decisively, but not hastily.
The details matter. The big picture matters more. People matter most.
Be of service. Be kind. Expect the same from others and do not settle for less.
