My process is to start from an electronic stationery template, improves my vocabulary, keeps me from using a contraction for firetruck. I also figure anything I write will be public soon enough, so better to establish who wrote it.
Starting a company? Selling a company? Trying to resolve a thorny problem? Trying to UNDERSTAND a complex problem? Make a list. Seriously, start writing a list. In the last two days I’ve been amazed how half a dozen impasse s...
