I don’t agree with Gary Vee’s core philosophy that to succeed you win just by outworking your competitors.
I know plenty of people who work incredibly hard and very long hours but get nowhere.
Success isn’t that simple. You succeed by having the right strategy. Creating the right strategy requires deep thinking.
Uber came from deep thinking into the problems with cabs.
PayPal came from deep thinking into how online transactions could work.
Amazon came from deep thinking into better ways for people to buy things online.
After the thinking comes the work to execute on your strategy. But success comes from doing focused work based on sound strategy.
