Don’t be the adversity guy

entrepreneur-lightning

Don’t tempt the Universe to throw challenges at you.

If you read enough stoic philosophy, or books like The Hard Thing About Hard Things and The Obstacle is the Way, you can easily slip into thinking along the lines of, “Bring it on! Give  me your best shot!”

Don’t be that guy. Take the lessons of Holliday, Horowitz and the Stoics onboard, and equip yourself to deal with setbacks.

But don’t ask for challenges. Don’t stand at the top of a hill in a lightning storm.

Being an entrepreneur is hard enough.
