No matter how good you are, don’t ever let them see you coming. That’s the gaffe my friend. You gotta keep yourself small. Innocuous. Be the little guy.
This quote from “The Devil’s Advocate” has stuck with me for a long time. In my view, it applies to a lot of daily matters — personal or business. It applies to startup’s and entrepreneurs, just as much it applies to living and happiness.
The gist of the matter is to “be small”, like an ant in an ant-farm (notice how most of the modern patterns originate from the works of nature). And most importantly, to grow organically. At the end of the day, we all are little economies. Never underestimate the revenue model. Even the best of ideas can die out, without any returns.
