This morning I've been thinking about how much energy I spend in denying and avoiding reality, and in wishing that things were otherwise than they are.

The Buddha's Five Remembrances

I credit my mystery practice with revealing the pervasiveness of my denial to me. And I don't feel bad about this discovery. (I'm very good at feeling bad.) Rather, it feels like a step on my path to self-understanding, self-acceptance, and freedom. Food, the internet, sleep, depression, lying around the house, overwork, and worrying about doing things right: I use all of these things to hold reality at bay.

Validated learning about customers

Sounds like a no-brainer, but I’d like to try and convince you that it’s not. All things being equal, of course, you’d rather have more revenue rather than less. But all things are never equal. In an early-stage startup especially, revenue is not an important goal in and of itself. This may sound crazy, coming as it does from an advocate of charging customers for your product from day one. Let’s start with a simple question: why do early-stage startups want revenue? Consider this company (as always, a fictionalized composite): they have a million dollars of revenue, and are showing growth quarter after quarter.
