Run your own race.

When you’re trying to build something new that’s better than the alternatives, thinking of the alternatives doesn’t really help at all. Sure, industry trends and the general competitive landscape gives you a sense of what’s going on, but there’s not much beyond that.

Focus on your own ideas of what the future should be. It’s more challenging, more exciting, and much more rewarding to venture onto new paths. That’s where you’ll find the products of the future waiting for you to build.
