Just a few things I learned from my dad

– “Don’t confuse motion with action”– Don’t tell me how hard you worked, tell me what you accomplished.

– “If you can’t explain it you don’t understand it” 

– “Think big picture” – Forget the exact answer.  Does it make sense that 20% of a number could be larger than the number itself?  Make sense of things at a high level before obsessing over the details.

“Know your inventory” – Do you know how much cash you have access to? What your living expenses are? How long you could go with no income? How much debt you have and how you’re trending and spending? What your best chance/customer/project is that could earn more money?  If you don’t know where you are now you can’t know what’s best to focus on next.
