Last year when I was at PAX East, I stopped in to Ben Kuchera's presentation (my favorite of the entire expo). I just came across my notes that I scribbled onto a piece of paper.
I remember that within 10 minutes I was so into what he was saying, that I stopped taking notes and just tried to internalize everything he said.
It’s not much, but here’s what I wrote:
1.) keep a roloex of people smarter than you
2.) it takes 5 years to suck at something until you’re good at it
3.) find the story that no one is doing
4.) long terms stick around
5.) if it scares you it never gets better and it’s always hard
