What are you doing?
Nice quote from Larry Ellison to sum up this torrid week,
“There are two kinds of people in business; people who build products and people who sell products. Figure out how you fit into one of these two camps, or you’re toast.”
Now I know why my head hurts when I find myself dealing with issues that have very little or no relevance to staying on track. If you are in a startup, such issues are plenty and tempt you every day. The raw environment of a startup requires, nay begs that you simplify your thoughts and focus on quickly setting and meeting goals.
Even if you are in the services industry and have an entrepreneurial mindset, focus on either one of the two things. Take your product seriously. That is the only way you will survive a startup later on.
