How to keep the momentum while working hard: - Don't burn out - Pick fun projects - Don't be a single point of failure - Spread your knowledge - Delegate - Fire yourself from boring jobs - Pair on projects, don't get stuck - Take staycations - Solve the little problems first


Two important vectors to build momentum in a startup are listening to users & shipping speed. To listen well, you'll need to constantly talk to users & be picky about who to serve. To ship quickly, you have to scope just enough & have good instincts about how to solve the problem


Startups are basically a competition to figure out how to solve problems in less than a month that popular belief suggests will take an enormous set of resources or time. Death looms so one must earn momentum & traction in order to keep solving the next set of hard problems.


I hope with more programmers, more funding, and more competition to build the same mobile/web app, that it will move the momentum for great engineers to work on harder problems previously seen as too risky due to longer time horizons. Being easily copied might be higher risk now.
