Less joy: You’ll experience less joy if you’re doing an activity you’re not great at.
Hustle and grind: The idea that an entrepreneur can only build their business through “hustle and grind” is false.
Clear direction: An entrepreneur’s main contribution to their company is clear direction.
Out of a job: To reach the goal of your company being able to run without you, you almost have to put yourself out of a job.
Perfect perspective: No day is going to be a perfect day, but you can have a perfect perspective.
