Control What You Can, But Equally Meet Surrendering
Jenny Chang says that every entrepreneur and creator has this syndrome of wanting everything to be perfect. People want everything to be perfect to the point that they eventually don’t even start because they are stuck in the shadow of their plans instead of getting their product out there or getting connections, etc. She says that creators should change their perspective and quotes that “It’s not I wanna start this business, it’s the world that needs this business.” To intentionally create an experience that we want, Jenny says we should build the bridge between control and surrender and points out that, “Control what you can but equally meet surrendering,” which is trusting the process and not controlling something so tight that you lose grip.
