1. In short

“How to be successful”, according to Sam Altman:

  1. Compound yourself
  2. Have almost too much self-belief
  3. Learn to think independently
  4. Get good at “sales”
  5. Make it easy to take risks
  6. Focus
  7. Work hard
  8. Be bold
  9. Be willful
  10. Be hard to compete with
  11. Build a network
  12. You get rich by owning things
  13. Be internally driven
