Do you want to be known as the businessman, or the critic of the businessman?
Because the critic, at one point, wanted to be the businessman, but they gave up too soon.
They were likely struggling as a businessman, and then they got a small taste of the critic life: how much easier it is to get traction when you comment and ridicule the creative work of the businessman.
Be like Phil Knight. Build Nike, and then maybe at the end of it all, you critique yourself with a book to sum it all up.
A businessman, first and foremost. Never a critic.
