✍️ Tips from the authors

It’s great to do these tactics on your own. It’s even better to try them together with advisors, teams, or peers!

Use these tactics to take small, bold steps every day instead of changing everything all at once.

Mistakes are important. They’re how you learn! So don’t try to be perfect, but do pay careful attention to failure.
