Mark Zuckerberg: Let me tell you a secret

小瓶子    2021年1月2日

Let me tell you a secret: no one does when they begin. Ideas don’t come out fully formed. They only become clear as you work on them. You just have to get started.

Anyone working on a big vision is going to get called crazy, even if you end up right. Anyone taking on a complex problem is going to get blamed for not fully understanding it, even though it's impossible to know everything upfront. Anyone taking initiative will always get criticized for moving too fast, because there's always someone who wants to slow you down.

In our society, we often don't take on big things because we're so afraid of making mistakes that we ignore all the things wrong today if we do nothing. The reality is, anything we do today is going to have some issues in the future. But that can't stop us from getting started.

So what are we waiting for?
