He’s worked hard to build his life and the tools that he creates with his company by continuously breaking things down to the most simple and real concepts.

Wise words from Issac when you feel stuck:
Where do I start?
- Make sure that you are giving yourself all the freedom to be whatever you desire to be but also to let go of whatever you don’t desire to be.
What about work?
- Ask yourself: is this the thing you are made for in the first place? Are you ignoring that fear or embracing and understanding that fear?
What is my next step?
- Level with yourself. Make sure you are where you feel like you are right where you are supposed to be.
