The curse of being popular

 Recently I read about the stock fall of Netflix and how it is getting more and more expensive for them to keep up with fresh content and how it is hard to increase their sales.

The dream for any founder is to be the dominant in their field, but what is the price they pay.

See as an example Nokia, who were the dominant business in the mobile market until they weren’t.

This means that being the best in any category is temporary as everything else.

Once you go down that road, you tend to do more of the same, which gives your competitors a chance to do something totally different and steal your precious first place.

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
