Weekly Reflection: Week One Hundred Thirty-Eight

Today marks the end of my one-hundred-thirty-eighth week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week one hundred thirty-eight:

  • Truth – This week I thought about truth, which led to my post yesterday. Seeking truth isn’t something that most people do. I believe it’s one of the traits that separate the good from the great. Seeking truth allows you to make better decisions.  
  • Networks – I started to think about network nodes. How can you create more nodes to increase the free flow of information at early-stage start-ups and the people who support them? Can creating network nodes increase early-stage network quality?
  • Non-consensus  – This week I came across two great founders. They’re not in the right VC/start-up networks, and the problems they’re solving aren’t obvious (but they are painful). These founders are non-consensus and, in my book, great founders to back. They represent an opportunity for non-consensus alpha.
  • Thanksgiving – Looking forward to time with family and friends!

Week one hundred thirty-eight was a focused week. Looking forward to next week and the Thanksgiving holiday!
