“Don’t get distracted. Never tell yourself that you need to be the biggest brand in the whole world. Start by working on what you need at the present moment and then what you need to do tomorrow. So, set yourself manageable targets.” -Jas Bagniewski, Co-Founder of Eve Sleep
Set yourself manageable targets– Jas Bagniewski
I will cover the full quote mentioned above.
Running a startup or a company is hard, you will need to focus to grow. Maybe it’s a different attitude towards things, but i personally think, telling yourself you should be the best is a good thing, more stressful, yes, but can be beneficial in the long run. The attitude of Jas is clearly relaxed, no stress, everything cool … but i am not sure this is an attitude big corporations or ambitious founders should take, planning your work day by day is not necessarily a recipe for excellence.
The last part, i do agree with Jas on, especially that i fail miserably at it, often leaving my daily tasks half done, due to overloading my schedule. You should definitely set yourself manageable tasks, this would reduce stress, and leave lot of time for fun, family and friends … Did Steve Jobs do that ? or Does Elon Musk or any of the top entrepreneurs set manageable targets and plan work day by day, i don’t know, but i think not.
