Laura Wu - founder of Shippo - outlines a great post on how founders can come up with their Vision and Strategy
A great writeup from Mark Suster talking about the importance of doing less things, to focus on what is most important. In a world of "too much of everything" this is a way to take a breath and focus.
In a book called The Outsiders - Eight Unconventional CEOs and their Radically Rational Blueprint for Success, the author William Thorndike asks the question, who have been the best CEOs ever? And what metric should be used to gauge them? Of the 8 chosen CEOs, Warren Buffet of Berkshire Hathaway is the only name I recognized. The other companies included some household names, but most I didn’t recognize: Capital Cities, Teledyne, General Dynamics, TCI, Washington Post, Ralston Purina, General Cinema. Yet, all of these companies witnessed decades of growth and appreciation far above market performance.
