I’ve been working and building a corporate startup incubator over the last 6 months and I’ve come up with a theory.
If you’re not frustrated then you’re not a startup.
That’s the conclusion I’ve come to this past hour. I believe change early and change often is a saying, but to what extent? Weekly? Daily? Hourly? Change can be great. I enjoy change, but I feel that too much change in procedures or operational change leads you to working on things that don’t matter.
A good example is a login screen for an app. Startups and engineers use frameworks (templates) to make it quick and simple to implement things, such as login screens. Every website has one. So why would you keep building and recreating the wheel. In my opinion, the same goes for operational tools. The trick is to pick something and go with it. If you spend too much time working on things that don’t matter you find yourself with a really great login page protecting a whole lot of nothing.
I’m pretty sure this analogy doesn’t make sense, but hopefully you get the gist.
And as promised a good tune to take you on your way:
