How to Meditate -- In 10 short minutes you could easily learn a meditation practice that you can take with you the rest of your life. Meditation helps calm your mind, ease stress and bring clarity to your everyday life. My productivity increases whenever I meditate consistently and noticeably declines when I fall out of my routine. Watch a YouTube video or read a quick blog post on how to meditate. It’s easy.

Grit in the Face of Failure -- You cannot learn grit in a classroom. Being an entrepreneur is about making the effort to create something from nothing. You can learn theories and best practices in a classroom, but you cannot learn the grit and dedication it takes to see your vision to the end. So much of success is in the willingness to invest 100 percent of your energy in the face of great uncertainty, and to wake up the next day ready to do it again. The path is not smooth and you will take your lumps. Grit is about falling down and getting back up, again and again. You can't learn that in a classroom.

Culture Will Wait for You to Create It -- "The interesting thing about a company culture is that it will create itself if you don't create it first. CEOs need to define and personify the company culture and instill it at every level of the organization. The best companies all have a culture based on their mission, and all employees know why they're working so hard. When the opposite is true, the culture will create itself--and it may not be the culture you envisioned."
