Podcast Notes Key Takeaways

  • You can’t say yes to what you want to do if you don’t say no to what you don’t want to do
  • “Do you believe in statistics, or do you believe in calculus? As an entrepreneur, you have to believe in calculus. You don’t believe you have an 8% chance of succeeding; you believe there’s an answer, and you’ll find it. If you don’t have that attitude, don’t start a company.”Ben Horowitz
  • Every organization should make an effort to diagnose and deal with their “kimchi problems”
  • The biggest hiring mistake companies make: hiring based on look and feel
