“Over the past decade, venture capital has become synonymous with entrepreneurship. Founders from around the world arrive in Silicon Valley with visions of record-setting A rounds and billion-dollar valuations. But what if you don’t have unicorn dreams — or you don’t want to pursue VC money?”

“I was on the phone with a colleague last week, going over our year in review. It’s an activity I normally look forward to but which now gave me pause as I recalled the many real struggles we’ve faced as a company since March.

This year has been uncharted territory for us all. We’ve had to improvise on the fly for months on end, use up every ounce of resilience we have, and continue to inch forward even as the deck has been stacked against us.”

“So, rather than composing an entire speech ahead of time, write out key concepts you want to hit, the practice — using them as a focus. Because, by leaving space for flexibility, it’s easier to adjust depending on the mood of the room. If people seem to be zoning out, engage the audience with a question or joke. Making eye contact and moving around the stage is also key for maintaining dynamic interaction — both much harder if you’re frozen in place trying to remember your lines.”

“Aytekin Tank is the founder of JotForm, which makes software for creating online forms. Writing on his company’s blog, he describes multi-item to-do lists as ‘a race to the bottom, except there is no bottom.’

“Today, more than two years after the global onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, it seems many businesses are finally starting to see the light (or at least more light) at the end of the tunnel. Many of them have faced a business crisis and somehow managed to survive.

At the same time, health officials are already trying to get ahead of the next pandemic whenever it may occur because one thing’s certain: It will occur.”

“I’m not sure when the dogma of morning routines began to spread, but suddenly, these mile-long checklists are everywhere — especially in the startup world.

“Homer understood the power of habits. In his epic poem, The Odyssey, the Sirens are half-woman, half-bird creatures whose hypnotic voices lure sailors into deadly coastlines. Ignore the misogyny in this ancient Greek tale, and the Sirens represent temptation; the magnetic pull of things we should probably resist. I’m not a classical scholar, but habits feel like the siren song of modern life.”

“Saying goodbye isn’t easy. For over 30 years, a to-do list was my constant companion. We stuck together through notepads, bullet journals, apps, and a whole lot of sticky notes. But I recently ended our co-dependent relationship—and I urge you to do the same.”

“As a busy CEO and founder, I receive hundreds of emails every day and send around 50 myself. Yet at the end of the day, my inbox is empty. I follow a principle called Inbox Zero. No, I don’t have an assistant managing my emails. And no, Inbox Zero is not just a dream – it can be done.”

“I’ve been a CEO for more than 16 years, while I have always tended to stay away from productivity hacks, I believe “scary hour” may be one of the worst ones yet. Plus, I believe it is a leaders’ responsibility to provide their employees with tips on how to avoid “scary hours” and to offer various ways to stay productive when challenging tasks arise. Here’s what you should do instead of trying “scary hour.””

In addition to simmering anxiety about their careers, these employees have to grapple with significantly larger workloads. In the tech industry, for example, one report found that the number of weekend hours jumped to 11.5 hours on average—a 31 % increase.”
