Building A Company

“A heroic effort requiring 80-100 hours a week.”

Building a company is like building an engine. When you first draw the architecture, it looks especially clean, beautiful, and pretty. However, translating that into practice takes a lot of effort, that’s why people work 80-100 hours a week. It’s a heroic effort to keep it together.

High Performance Machine

Eventually you want to construct a very high performance machine which nobody has to worry about every hour, or every minute of the day. Therefore, ‘build a company that idiots could run, because eventually they will’ (Warren Buffett). The leaders job is to maximize the output of that organization. Furthermore, you want to focus on output or progress (not input), and by doing so avoid ‘measuring motion & confusing progress’.
