Tweetable Quotes

“Never half-ass two things. Whole ass one thing.” - Ron Swanson

“Be so good they can’t ignore you.” - Steve Martin

“If I stay with it, then one day I will have been playing for forty years, and anyone who sticks with something for forty years will be pretty good at it.” - Steve Martin

"(My) advice is to focus on one thing. I see a lot of entrepreneurs build something and then move onto the next thing and the next thing and the next. Building something is only step one. It’s not that hard to put something out there. Building on top of that to maintain and improve it is actually the harder thing to do. Anyone can release something, but it’s much harder to polish and refine it over time once it’s out there." - Jason Fried, Founder of 37 Signals

“Do things that don’t scale.” - Paul Graham

“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” - Michelangelo

“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year
 and underestimate what they can do in ten years.” - Bill Gates
