If it’s not fun, don’t do it.
Whatever you are doing, be excellent at it. Learn all you can about it.
Don’t fly bigger things just because they are ‘better’ when you don’t have the skills or the experience. A Battleship in the hands of an idiot is a bigger danger to the pilot than to anyone else.
Play EVE your way. Don’t be told how to play, be a pioneer, once upon a time, everyone was.
