Great post by Fred Wilson (A VC), talking about keeping focus in a startup:
There’s always the desire to please the customers. But knowing what you are going to do and focusing on it is so critical. Saying yes might seem like no big deal. It’s only a few lines of code, right? Wrong. It’s never just a few lines of code. So say no as often as you can. It’s counter intuitive to the entrepreneur mindset, but it’s critical.
I couldn’t agree more, although I must admit it’s easier said than done. There are so many interesting things to try… but you have to focus!
