(this document is a work-in-progress.)

getting to know myself

what have i enjoyed working on in the past?

what drives me insane?

what do i never get bored of doing?

what parts of running a business scare me or worry me? what parts excite me?

what’s my biggest weakness?

how much money do i want to make?

what impact do i like to make?


what does success look like to me? in very specific terms, what do i want to achieve?

Imagine a small row boat. Your goals are like the rudder on the boat. They set the direction and determine where you go. If you commit to one goal, then the rudder stays put and you continue moving forward. If you flip-flop between goals, then the rudder moves all around and it is easy to find yourself rowing in circles.

However, there is another part of the boat that is even more important than the rudder: The oars. If the rudder is your goal, then the oars are your process for achieving it. While the rudder determines your direction, it is the oars that determine your progress.
