“I want you from now and forever to imagine yourself standing in a room with 1000 doors, and your job is to know better than anyone else in the company - better than anyone else on the planet - which 999 of those doors to close. That's business.”

“Until you have so much clarity that you know what to do with the next 15 minutes, you're lost. If the next 15 minutes isn't self evident to you, you're lost. So whenever you're like, “I'm not sure what the next move is,” it's because you don't have enough clarity.” [19:11]
