In a recent article for Inc.com, several founders shared the best advice they’d received over their long and storied careers.
The wisdom runs the gamut, but reading through the article, it’s clear that the factors essential to being successful orbit a few key points: You need to be adaptable yet focused on the specific things that you and your business can do really well. You need to prune your priorities while taking time for yourself and your health. You need to show your team and those who depend on your success that you’re driven, but you also need to take care not to overextend yourself.
Recognize where your energy is best spent, and relentlessly exert your efforts there.
