Paul Roetzer was given the question “If you had one last blog post to write, what would you say?” and answered it in his blog post: The Last Blog Post: 5 Lessons I’d Leave Behind.
The lessons he would leave behind are:
1 Pursue purpose.
It’s not about the money as entrepreneurs will never be satisfied with wealth alone.
2 Success is a process, not a privilege.
Success is about persistence and out working your peers and competitors
3 Send less time planning, more time doing.
No one cares about what you are going to do. Plans may be necessary but they can also be a way of avoiding action.
4 Nothing has ever been achieved without passion.
If you want to be great, however you define it, do what you want to do.
5 Everyone has a story.
The benefits of dealing with positive people and avoiding negativity.
It’s a motivating blog post and worth reading in full.
