Burn the ship of fear

Everyone is afraid. Not everyone lets fear become an excuse.

A thought from Troy Tyler:

“Strat­egy is all about com­mit­ment,” says Tyler. “If what you’re doing isn’t irrev­o­ca­ble, then you don’t have a strat­egy — because any­one can do it. That’s why burn­ing the boats is so impor­tant. I’ve always wanted to treat life like I was an invad­ing army and there was no turn­ing back.”

Boldness has genius.
