Jason Fried about lessons learned at 37signals
1. Don’t fail often
If you learn only from mistakes, then you learn what not to do and you don’t learn what to do. Keep an eye on your successes. Entrepreneurs who failed are not more likely to succeed like anyone else who didn’t try in the first place. Like in evolution emphasize what really works.
2. Planning is overrated
Plans are guesses. You can’t predict what’s going to happen. Rough ideas are enough [a vision?]. You know more when you did something. Figure out things as you go along. Be aware what is going on, every day.
