    Thanks for this post, I’m definitely gonna work on my time management (which I’m horrible at) and being persistent.

    This post is definitely one of the best. Basically: #5 you can’t give up easily, #4 focus on the good outweighing the bad, #3 you’re most productive when you prioritize. #2 your brand can’t be more of the same, unique yet still benefits society. #1 to me can be put in the same box with #2, since you need creativity to stand out from the crowd in building a unique brand.
