One helpful tip per day:)

Paul Graham explained why having your own projects is so important:

  1. The difference between having your own project and working for someone else is like the difference between walking and skateboarding;
  2. A personal project has two characteristics: it is self-driven, and you are hands-on;
  3. Such projects give you more control, which in turn propels you forward;
  4. The best way to ensure autonomy is to have no boss, meaning these projects are outside of work and you call the shots;
  5. When children skateboard, they have boundless confidence, something we lack as adults. Therefore, we need not only to have our own projects but also to regain that kind of confidence.

Paul Graham 介绍了为什么拥有自己的项目这么重要:

  1. 拥有自己的项目和为人打工的区别就像走路和滑板的区别;
  2. 所谓自己的项目有两个特点,一是你自我驱动的,二是你亲力亲为;
  3. 这样的项目让你有更多的掌控,从而进一步推动你前进;
  4. 保证自主性最好保持没有老板,这就要求这些项目是在工作之外,同时你自己说了算;
  5. 当孩子玩滑板时还有无限的自信,而这是成年后的我们所欠缺的,所以我们不光要有自己的项目,还要找回这样的自信。
