Hacker’s Law of Success (in 4 parts):
1. Stop beating yourself up or I will do it for you.
2. Quit worrying about what you imagine I or anyone else might think of you.
3. Courage is NOT the absence of fear. It is being scared shitless and doing it anyway.
4. Shut the fuck up and DO IT.
After that, all that’s left is to risk, trust the process, and learn from it. Failure, viewed and treated properly, is a great success.
