I probably should have mentioned: don't try working for a startup -
or, for that matter, being a contractor of any sort - unless you're
interested in what you're doing, and like a challenge. Otherwise,
you won't be bored: you'll be scared.

The trick, I suppose, is to learn to love the adrenalin rush of life
on the edge. Either that, or to be too tired to realize the full
horror of what you're doing. Take your pick.

"I got sinister things waiting for you in my rattle-bag,
Egyptian rings, and the dust of kings and the tooth of hag,
The bones of Keats, the tongues of cheats and a mad dog's eye
I'm going to make you love me, and you won't know why."
