Dear Entrepreneur,

In this month's cover story, Silicon Valley hero Tristan Walker poses that question to himself. He's a high-profile guy—major keynotes, constant media attention—and yet he's reminding himself that none of it matters if he isn't a great CEO first. And he's right. It's dangerously easy to forget that the rewards are made possible by the hard stuff. We've all faced some version of this, right? For me, I love setting aside time to be interviewed on podcasts, speak on conferences, and do many other gratifying perks of this job—but I must force myself to remember that unless I'm also editing, writing, and leading my teams to greatness, I'm not a success worth hearing from. We all want to go out and tell our stories, to impress our peers, to share our hard-earned lessons. We want to enjoy success. And we should! But let us never forget that nobody celebrates us just because. We are who we are because of the hard work, the overlooked work, the day-to-day grind. A tree doesn't blossom without roots underground, and entrepreneurs don't thrive without unglamorous labor. How can we be the best we can be? That's Walker's question. And we should all ask it of ourselves too.
