In today's episode, we're diving into a topic that every entrepreneur can relate to: patience. Or perhaps more accurately, impatience. Historically, I’ve been an impatient person, and while this trait can fuel our motivation and drive, it can also lead to frustration and poor decision-making.

We’ll explore the dual nature of impatience and discuss how it can both propel us forward and hold us back. This episode is especially relevant if you’ve ever felt the stress of not achieving your goals as quickly as you’d like.

Topics Covered:

  • The benefits and drawbacks of impatience for entrepreneurs
  • The negative impact of impatience on decision-making and energy
  • Insights from the book "10x is Easier than 2x" and how it shifted my perspective on goal-setting
  • Why entrepreneurs drive themselves crazy with deadlines, not goals
  • The importance of reflecting on your progress and celebrating 10x leaps
  • Embracing the long game and releasing yourself from rigid timelines
