Manage trajectory, not emotions

As I progress on my journey of entrepreneurship, I’m constantly bombarded with situations that test my emotions. Whether it’s great successes or failures, the instability of a tech startup creates an unbelievable amount of stress.

In the past few days, I’ve realized the key to this emotional rollercoaster is managing trajectory, not emotions. If you allow your work to reflect your emotional ebbs and flows (we all know these people), you may as well kiss progress goodbye.

Instead, accept that some days you’re going to feel defeated, and challenge yourself to stay on course. Don’t let one defeat affect your entire vision of where you’re going.
