I just read this article about staying laser focused. I just heard Jason Fried speak about laser focus. I think it’s something that we all need to ‘focus’ on a little more. It is easy to have a million things in the pot but at the end of the day what really needs to be in it? Meat and a little seasoning, right? (I guess it depends if you are a vegetarian!)
I think this is a good lesson for everyone who is looking to dive into new ventures (myself included). Being available to ‘lead’ a company and keep a company focused on its core mission is a very important job. Conference and other business development type work can come second to making a really great product.
Good stuff to keep in mind.
