When you climb a mountain, the goal isn’t to climb the mountain as fast as possible (unless you are trying to set some kind of record… in which case, good for you).
The goal is to get to the top (and back) alive, safely, and with the best adventure as possible.
Like starting a company, the goal isn’t to scale clients, employees, or revenues as *fast* as possible. The goal is to scale at the right pace so that you can make it to the top and back. To succeed at your mission, it takes perseverance matched with smarts and intuition to know when you should go another hundred feet vs. calling it a successful day.
Celebrate the victories you achieve each day, no matter how large or small, fast or slow.
