A busy calendar and a busy mind will destroy your ability to do great things in this world. If you want to be able to do great things, whether you’re a musician, or whether you are an entrepreneur, or whether you’re an investor, you need free time and you need a free mind.—@naval https://twitter.com/naval/status/1131218550830485504

Doctors won’t make you healthy. Nutritionists won’t make you slim. Teachers won’t make you smart. Gurus won’t make you calm. Mentors won’t make you rich. Trainers won’t make you fit. Ultimately, you have to take responsibility. Save yourself. —@naval
One weird trick of the @naval podcast is that we only use one mic in person, so there’s never any crosstalk.
Anything you have to do, just get it done. Why wait? Your life is slipping away. You don’t want to spend it waiting in line. You don’t want to spend it traveling back and forth.

Judgment is knowing the long-term consequences of your actions. In an age of infinite leverage, judgment is the most important skill.

QUESTION This friend of mine is writing a blurb for Stephen Wolfram. Wolfram is a genius but that's the least uncommon of his attributes. Are there other successful living scientists who are so fully independent that they do everything on their own terms?
 
Possibly Art DeVany, Nick Szabo, Gregory Chaitin.
Organization is the enemy of innovation.
(It’s the speed at which the team iterates the product. From “shipping code / shipping product.”)
My number one predictor of whether or not a company will find product-market fit: High shipping cadence.
 
I would not disagree with that. It might sound like you could spoof this heuristic by constantly shipping random crap. But no one can stand doing that for long. So in practice shipping regularly means you're on the track.
 
There’s velocity and direction.
 
while i agree shipping faster is better, your statement assumes the team also has theability to listen/track feedback from users/customers, and that info is at least linear in proportion to shipping cadence. (this is likely a false assumption ;)
