Own it!

The bullshit as much as the facts. The fuckups as much as the accomplishments. The shortcomings as much as the achievements. Fear as much as confidence. Defeat as much as victory. Failure as much as success. Even better, reflect credit but embrace blame. Demand responsibility but do not worry about authority. Forgive and forget, but learn. Take better decisions, and even better, lead for everyone to take better decisions. And carry on! Do it and do it right! Do it right away!

Seth shared some of his thoughts about this on thinking backwards, getting the work we want and where we want to be. “How much of your day is spent working to get better clients versus pleasing the clients you’ve already got?”

Finally, as I read from [James](sg.linkedin.com/in/motochan) & our friends and partners from Silicon Straits, “It’s one thing to start a company, and another to manage growth and scale. (…) I look forward to an even better 2015; auspicium melioris aevi!”, here’s to an upcoming year full of challenges and opportunities, and more than hoping for it to be just a better one, here’s to reminding myself that there will not be another 2015. Do it on purpose. Patience is for the impatient.
