"Running a startup is 80% best practices and 20% best practices for you."
Early-stage startup operators should always stand on the shoulders of giants.
There are two paramount goals whenever a new operation needs to be put into place:
- Get a good-enough operation running
- Do that as quickly as possible to enable learning / iteration
- Read "The Great CEO Within" or ctrl + f the google doc
- Googling & opening ~10 promising links
- Checking First Round
- Checking Lenny Rachitsky
- Checking Y Combinator
