Weekly Reflection: Week One Hundred Eighty-Six

This is my one-hundred-eighty-sixth weekly reflection. Here are my takeaways from this week:

  • No – This week was a reminder that the power of saying no more than yes is underestimated. Saying no allows for more focus on the things that matter most and maintains the optionality of new opportunities. Saying yes to too many things can result in lack of focus and loss of future optionality.
  • Strategic sales – I’m hearing more early-stage founders with diminishing runway discuss the possibility of selling their business to a strategic acquirer if they can’t raise additional capital.

Week one hundred eighty-six was another week of learning. Looking forward to next week!
