This is your check-in…

How are you doing?

The year is over.

Focus on the WINS.

You’re doing a good job.

What you do is hard.

Last. Year. Was. Hard.

You’ve done the best you can.

You’re appreciated.

As leaders, we often forget to celebrate the wins and take stock…

Consider This…

Everything that happens is either endurable or not…Just remember: you can endure anything your mind can make endurable, by treating it as in your interest to do so. In your interest, or in your nature.

–Marcus Aurelius, Meditations


It’s not physical. It’s a powerful force that lives in the mind.

Winning at the startup game requires some endurance. You just have to put your mind to it.

Keep pushing.
