Quote I’m pondering —
“Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”
– Albert Einstein
Which now has me pondering this quote. I’m certainly “reading” a lot these day thanks to Audible and Podcast subscriptions that fill my commute.
“A CEO’s first job is to build a product users love; the second job is to build a company to maximize the opportunity that the product has surfaced; and the third is to harvest the profits of the core business to invest in transformative new product ideas.”—Y Combinator Continuity fund CEO Ali Rowghani, on a startup CEO’s priorities at different stages.

“We didn’t lose the game; we just ran out of time.”
It’s not the years in your life that counts. It’s the life in your years. – Abraham Lincoln
