How starting a startup is like starting a fire

  • You need to focus on making one spot of wood hot to gain critical heat to achieve ignition
  • If you spread your fire-starting efforts over too much surface, you have a bunch of lukewarm paper and wood and not a fire.
  • If you have a bunch of damp wood, your job will be harder
  • You need protection from outside elements like wind and rain.
  • It takes time
  • It gets easier as you practice.
