The three conclusive questions
It’s either a hell yea or it’s a no.
I used to scribble that sentence on my forearm with a sharpie. It’s great advice.
Even if you’re easily confused, drawn towards multiple directions at once. Even then, you must believe that what you’re about to do, is a hell yea.
Otherwise, you’re screwed. In multiple ways.
What’s a hell yea?
It’s a definition of an opportunity, a choice you’re about to take. A kind of choice that gets you excited in the beginning. And after you think about it, it does all the below:
it will be fun (will I enjoy it, is it aligned with my goals?),
it will be a learning opportunity (will I grow?),
and it will make sense financially (does it support my needs?).
You already know what’s a no.
