No

I have a real bias toward yes. And more and more, I value the power of a positive no. Saying no to what I do not want.

Humble

Humility comes from someone who is open to not knowing. Being open to others’ wisdom and knowledge. Even willing to be wrong. Imagine that kind of strength! You long for it in leaders.

Perseverance

Begin.   Begin again.   Start a draft, prototype, blog, demo app, book, song, whatever.   Play around with it.   Revise it.   Never mind. Throw it out. What was I thinking!
