Playing bigger games

It takes just as much effort to be miserable as it does to be happy. It’s just as easy to criticise as it is to compliment. 
 
Entrepreneurs running impressive, game-changing businesses work just as hard, for just as long, as those running small ones. Elon Musk probably puts in the same hours as a restaurant owner, he’s just chosen a different scale of problems to solve. 
 
If you can successfully navigate unhappy customers, you can launch a global brand. If you can create dishes that one town loves, you can design products that make a difference to millions. If you can organise a kitchen, a menu and a rota, you can pitch investors and hire engineers. If you can run one venue, you can colonise Mars.
 
You might as well dream big, because dreaming small can always be your fallback. Plan A and plan B take just as much effort. Play bigger games, win bigger prizes.
