There’s always a defect, always a slow drip, somewhere. Every plan, every organization, every venture has a glitch.
The question isn’t, “is this perfect?” The question is, “will this get me there?”
Sometimes we make the mistake of ignoring the big leaks, the ones that threaten our journey.
More often, though, we’re so busy fixing tiny leaks that we get distracted from the real goal, which is to go somewhere.
Finding the right balance is really hard. This is one of the reasons it is important to have in the founding team of a startup someone who is focused on the product (ie fixing the leaks) and someone who is focused on the market (ie going somewhere). -Edwin
