"At any given time there tends to be one problem that's the most urgent for a startup. This is what you think about as you fall asleep at night and when you take a shower in the morning. And when you start raising money, that becomes the problem you think about. You only take one shower in the morning, and if you're thinking about investors during it, then you're not thinking about the product." -- Paul Graham!

Skill improvement is likely to be minimized when facing substantially inferior opponents, because such opponents will not challenge one to exert maximal or even near-maximal effort when making tactical decisions, and problems or weaknesses in one’s play are unlikely to be exploited. At the same time, the opportunity for learning is also attenuated during matches against much strong opponents, because no amount of effort or concentration is likely to result in a positive outcome. — Some learning curves from the game of chess

Statistic says that only 10-20% of start-up companies succeed and whilst we’d all like to think we are a part (or will be a part) of that 10-20% chances are we’re all part of the 80% who don’t make it. That’s just probability. On average it will take a few tries and some luck, a lot of luck actually, to come out on top.

The most important part of any new habit is getting started — not just the first time, but each time. It’s not about performance, it’s about consistently taking action. In many ways, getting started is more important than succeeding. This is especially true in the beginning because there will be plenty of time to improve your performance later on.

“'It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to start a business, lose weight, write a book, or achieve any number of goals… who you are, what you have, and what you know right now is good enough to get going.

We all start in the same place: no money, no resources, no contacts, no experience. The difference is that some people — the winners — choose to start anyway” .

The dangers of “big” by +Joel Gascoigne

“The challenge for a lot of us is that when we go about our lives, we interact with so many 'big' things and we forget or don’t even know how they originally started. It’s difficult to understand how the evolutionary process of products and brands contributes and is vital to what they are today. We also all have big aspirations and want to get there fast.”

"That’s when it hit me. By consistently over delivering I had actually set the expectation that it will become the norm and it was only through stressful days, long nights and large amounts of caffeine that it could be maintained. That was not sustainable."

When things are going well, it’s great to be the founder. But when the ship is sinking, the captain has to go down with it. And that fact isn’t lost on any founder.

You don’t hear about too many startups where the founder leaves to get another job while the rest of the company sticks around to see if they will ever make it. It just doesn't happen.

Founders are like mothers to startups!

Small business have been brain washed that they should be like big businesses, but smaller. Be like their competitors, but  in a different neighbourhood and that's just not working any-more. -- +Seth Godin 

"It is our ability to build great teams, to form great partnerships, to not allow ego to gets in its way that will determine how successful we will become" -- Hakeem Bello Osagie
