Hey 'Seun,

You would grow up to a very funny world. A world in which, I believe we solved problems we should have left unsolved, now we trying to solve problems that shouldn't be in the first place.

Anyways, you would need the following assets;

Discipline: Discipline would be an asset; many folks can't seem to get themselves to do what they need to do, they'd rather go for whats convenient or what they feel like doing. It's one reason why productivity apps keeps making lots of money in the industry. There's a limit to how much of your 'responsibility' you can outsource to technology. 

Be disciplined.

Have depth: Our world has information much more than we can ever use. Because of this many lack depth. We know something about everything yet very little about something. Be a man of depth. In 2019 folks who have depths are kings on twitter. That's not your motivation, however, don't be shallow.

Be prolific: This isn't contradictory to having depth. Never sit at one idea, refining and improving upon it, yet it's just in your head. Push out an MVP. 

For you, the more an idea stays in your head as an idea, it seems you begin to see a million reasons why it's a foolish idea and why it won't fly. To avoid that, refine products not ideas. A basic product being improved upon is better than a grand idea getting polished in the head.

I'll pause my letters to you for a while.
