I have a saying, “Execute to learn.” - That’s pretty much what summarizes up my entire life. I execute to learn.
The equation is simple:
- Execute quickly on an idea
- Learn something
The speed of execution is the secret sauce. I get comments now and again about the speed of our execution. People say: “Damn bro, you are churning out daily content, you never miss a day!” I’ve had people comment on how fast we’re building applications for the cryptonation and how quickly we’re running experiments.
That’s the secret sauce!
We’ll never tell anyone that we’re right. Most of the time, we’re not right.
But we work harder than anyone else we know in this space, and our speed of execution is our weapon.
We fail. Oh, we fail a lot. We take time to retrospect our failings, learn something, and repeat. It is only through execution that we can learn what works and what doesn’t work. And when we rise from the failure, we are better equiped with knowledge we didn’t have previously.
I speak to so many startup entrepreneuers that want to build something great in their lives. But let me tell you what I see most of the time:
1 - They don’t show up to work. Every single day.
2 - They don’t execute with speed.
I remember talking with another Youtuber a couple months ago about this. He was so excited to see his Youtube channel grow. And certainly I was suprised too! I was excited for him! I want everyone to win. But here’s the problem.
He’s no longer around.
From what I gather, he didn’t do 1 and 2. He did not show up to work. He did not execute with speed. You see, nothing you do will ever work on the first try. Never. If failure is something that gets you down, then don’t be an entrepreneur. Don’t try to change your life.
Failure is your bedfellow. It will be there every day when you wake up telling you that you suck.
Fuck failure. Failure is my bitch. I own the failure. The failure is mine and mine alone.
Tell us today, where have you failed? Did it slow you down? Or did it invigorate you to try again?
