I made only one New Year’s resolution this year: to maintain the singular focus necessary to succeed with a startup.
There’s no need to pontificate on that subject of focus when it comes to startups — it’s an industry cliche (see this post that breaks it all the way down to a mathematical analysis). But I’ve been an entrepreneur long enough to have learned it the hard way how unforgiving it can be when you digress.
So, if for the next few months you find I am slow (or even completely non-responsive) in email or Facebook or Twitter, or hard to reach via Skype or SMS or voice, or otherwise not able to assist in many endeavors I have actively supported — just know it is because I’m working on something I’d really like to see done right, since it embodies so much of what we have been working on together for the past decade.
I’d like to make it a Really Happy New Year.
