3, Sep 2015

Think of 2 things you need to do, to become better at your work Don’t scroll down. Think of them first …. …. …. Those who thought of 3 or more are entrepreneurs

A lifeOf ambition  Of labor Not just physical but emotional Of no regrets Of time as the biggest weapon you have Of will the only four letter word And at the end of the long hard day When you look up Not for inspiration  Not in desperation  But just to acknowledge the power of your […]
