In startup life, winning is more important than not losing.
To use a golf metaphor: You must love a birdie more than you hate a bogey.
It’s natural to hate losing. You’ll never lose that feeling.
You just can’t let the feeling consume you.
Because if it does, you’ll never go for gold.
If you go for gold, there’s a chance you end up failing badly, rather than just being mediocre.
But if you never go for gold, you’ll never win.
Startup life is about winning.
Love the birdie more than you hate the bogey.
