NEW Startup S.H.I.T. *[Strategies, Hypotheses, Ideas, Theories]

“STATUS QUO BIAS” (And the Definition of Insanity?!)

Yes, of course “Startups Are Hard” — BUT, there are things we can do to dramatically improve the current success/fail rates if we start thinking (and re-thinking?) more strategically and identifying / addressing the most common Problems & Pitfalls
Because simply following the same path and repeating the same approach of countless failed Startups/Founders before you (and yet somehow hoping for different/better results!?) sounds pretty close to Einstein’s(?) definition of INSANITY…
And, yet, if we take a macro view of the Startup Community — it is a dumbfounding realization that we’re seeing today’s Startups/Founders failing at the exact same rate (and for many/most of the exact same reasons!) as Startups/Founders 5 years ago! (which failed at the same rate, for the same reasons, as Startups/Founders 10 years ago!)
This success/fail rate is NOT some “natural law” of entrepreneurship! — Rather, it’s Einstein’s aforementioned definition of INSANITY on full display!
— And we’re doing nothing
(not enough) to break the cycle!
#ItsGroundHogDay #StatusQuoBias
UNDERLYING PREMISES / PROBLEMS:
1a)
Most people have a very skewed perception of how many startups/entrepreneurs are struggling/failing — AND what the most common causes are…
BECAUSE:
1b) Startups will succeed loudly/publicly and will fail silently/privately — particularly Early Stage / Idea Stage.
THEREFORE:
1c) It becomes very difficult to improve a situation when most people don’t even realize the severity of the situation or just how repetitive and predictable the underlying causes are!
(For some reason, after observing it over and over again over the years, I’ve become fascinated by the topic!)

ONE WAY TO LOOK AT IT:

OR, PERHAPS…


Yes, of course we all like to say:

But, let’s be honest… that’s some “HAPPY-HORSESHIT HINDSIGHT!”


Click PLAY. If I did this write, it should start right at the chorus (2:44)

IN CONCLUSION…
