This notion of overnight success is very misleading, and rather harmful. If you’re starting something new, expect a long journey. That’s no excuse to move slow though. To the contrary, you must move very fast, otherwise you will never arrive, because it’s a long journey! This is also why it’s important to be frugal – you don’t want to starve to death half the way up the mountain.

Za prekonoćni uspeh je potrebno mnogo vremena
