3 Key Points:

  1. Entrepreneurs are uniquely positioned with skills and challenges that require extensive work to create a healthy mental state.
  2. Focus your daily activities on what you need to do to be where you want to be.
  3. Spend the time necessary to just "be" and listen, so that you don't get lost in the noise of our world.
