WHAT EVERY AMBITIOUS STARTUP NEEDS TO KNOW
Inspired by the experiences of the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup.
[Adapted and shortened - please read the original at the source linked below]
If you read one book on executive self-management read: The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker.
Anyone who has responsibility for getting the right things done is an executive.
#1: Manage Yourself"
That one can truly manage other people is by no means adequately proven," Drucker writes, "But one can always manage oneself." How can you possibly expect others to perform at the highest levels without first expecting that of yourself? If you want the average performance of those around you to go up, you must first improve your own performance.
#2: Do what you're made for
We are all incompetent at most things. The question is not how to turn incompetence into excellence, but to ask, "What can a person do uncommonly well?" Your responsibility is to know your competence—what you can do very well, what you are made for and align your life and work to it. "To focus on weakness is not only foolish; it is irresponsible," says Drucker. Do what you're made for, but then get better and better; eradicate weakness, yes, but only within strength.
#3: Work how you work best (and let others do the same)
If you're a tool put here on this Earth to be useful, how does the tool best work? Per Drucker, we are made for ways of working the same way we are right-handed or left-handed. No one but you can take responsibility to leverage how you best work, and the sooner you do, the more years you have to gain.
#4: Count your time, and make it count
What gets measured gets managed. How can we manage our time if we don't measure where our time goes? Make your time count. The "secret" of people who do so many things, writes Drucker, is that they do only one thing at a time; they refuse to let themselves be squandered away in "small driblets [that] are no time at all." This requires the discipline to consolidate time into blocks, of three types. 1) create unbroken blocks for individual think time, during the most clear-thinking time of day for you; these pockets of quietude might be only 90 minutes, but even the busiest executive must do them with regularity. 2) create intervals of unstructured time for people and the random things that come up. 3) only take meetings that matter (see next tip for how to do this)
#5: Prepare better meetings
Effective people make the most of meetings, and do this with consistent discipline. Prepare: have a clear purpose in mind ("why are we having this meeting?") and disciplined follow-up. Don’t waste other peoples time. And while we must all lead or join meetings, they should be limited to those meetings that result in the most useful work.
#6: Don't make 100 decisions when 1 will work
The most effective people find the patterns within chaos. We rarely face truly unique, one-off decisions. And there is a cost to good decision: it requires 1) argument and debate; 2) time for reflection and concentration; and, 3) energy expended to ensure superb execution. Make a fewer bigger decisions that apply to a large number of situations, to find a pattern within—in short, to go from chaos to concept.
[Warren Buffett learned to ignore possibilities as background noise. Instead, he makes a fewer, bigger decisions—such as to shift from buying mediocre companies at cheap prices to buying great companies at good prices. He repeated that decision. “Inactivity can be intelligent behavior”: contrast this with those who make hundreds of minor decisions with no big concept (strategy).]
#7: Find your one, big distinctive impact
Identify one, big thing that would most contribute to the future of your firm, and orchestrate getting it done. What is your one absolutely fundamental contribution that would not happen without you?
#8: Stop what you would not start now
Clear the clutter. Do not starve opportunity because you are busy with small problems resulting from past mistakes. If it were a decision today to start something you are already in (to enter a business, to hire a person, to institute a policy, to launch a project, etc.), would you do it today? If not, then stop doing it now.
#9: Run lean
The accomplishments of one good human resource in a key position are much larger than all the combined accomplishment of dividing the seat among multiple not-so-good people. Get better people, give them big things to do, enlarge responsibilities, let them work. Resist temptation to redesign positions to personalities. The fewer people, the smaller, less activity inside, the more nearly perfect is the organization.
#10: Be useful
You to spend a lot of energy on the question of how to be successful. But that is the wrong question.The question is: how to be useful!” What will your work add up to? How will other people's lives be changed? What difference will it make?

We like this post by NfX that describes what great founders do in a downturn.
According to the post, "in a downturn, the wise Founder will know the first action needed is a pivot of the mind. The CEO’s psychology is the greatest point of leverage in a company’s success or failure."
Read about eight mind shifts of CEOs of companies that survived, then thrived, despite downturns.
One of the most liked presentations among all HATCH! FAIR activities was a talk about the concept of "Authentic Demand", by Merrick Furst from FlashPoint (Georgia Tech).
He revealed the critical importance of the concept for all entrepreneurs. And, whilst principles are always true, regardless of your external environment; today, in the face of a pandemic with broad restrictions effecting every business, timeless truths should resonate even more...no?

Combat COVID-19 with product prototypes, coding, user experience design, and business or social impact models at Hack for Wuhan
2020-03-06 09:00 ~ 03-08 09:00
The event is organized by 开源社 , wuhan2020 and Datawhale
The unexpected outbreak of COVID-19 has such huge influence that it has developed into a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC).
According to the statistics up to February 16 at 19:00, there were a total of 69285 confirmed cases globally, with the number of cured reaching at 9778 and died at 1669.
Despite the difficulties, warm-hearted actions and activities are witnessed during this winter: the ongoing and continued dedication of numerous volunteers, the donation of urgent and necessary materials and supplies nationwide and worldwide, the highly-effective medical infrastructure construction of Huoshenshan Hospital and Leishenshan Hospital, and the support of medical teams from the other provinces of China.
In this fight against the epidemic, technical support plays an essential role. Chen Yueliang, an official with the Ministry of Civil Affairs, once urged tech companies to develop applications for public welfare, which, in his opinion, is “more helpful than donating even one billion yuan".
We have endeavored to encourage more people into the development of applications and apply the power of technology into this race against the disease.
A 5K-Star Community, An Anti-Coronavirus Battle
In January 2020, a group of enthusiastic developers founded an open source community named Wuhan2020 on GitHub, which is aimed to collect the information of hospitals, hotels, factories, logistics, donations, precaution, therapies, dynamics, etc. Through unified collection and publication process, all parties could share the information, and the social resources could be effectively allocated.
"Trust, Transparency, Technology" we built Wuhan2020 to achieve these values.
This way of collaboration proved effective. On GitHub, Wuhan2020 was among trending repositories, and has gained over 5,000 stars.
While gaining widespread attention, Wuhan2020 connects over 3,000 volunteers worldwide, including developers, product managers, designers, data analysts, information collectors, translators, media workers, and students. By staff's working together under the well-arranged mechanism, this community managed to build a digital defensive line against the epidemic. If you want to join us in this battle and contribute in the open source way, here comes an opportunity, as follows.
Hackthon Awaiting You
As volunteers and developers of Wuhan2020 community, we would like to invite you to our Hackathon: Hack for Wuhan, on 27th and 28th February, 2020. Let us hack together against the global crisis.
We believe hackathon can not only inspire the next billion dollar unicorns, but also help unite mission-driven developers and innovators to combat an international outbreak crisis.
We are looking forward to the novel designs, prototypes, business or social impact models. We believe that all efforts will make a profound impact.
We will provide professional technical supports to your inspiration, and you will have the opportunity to work with mentors from Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Andreessen Horowitz, GSR Venture, Google, Facebook, ByteDance and startups in Silicon Valley, China, and India.
Your every single effort for this fight against COVID-19 wherein all of us could keep the humanitarian spirits and open source values, can compose stories worth telling and precious memories to remember.
Hack for Wuhan Overview
In this online Hackathon, you will team up with other participants to work out creative solutions which can help the fight against the current epidemic of COVID-19.
To call on more people to participate and create works including product prototypes, coding, user experience design, and business or social impact models to combat the COVID-19 epidemic.
To encourage social innovation so that we can help the fight against the epidemic with open source collaboration and hence create shared value among volunteers, institutions, businesses enterprises, and platforms.
Online & remote working, distributed collaboration is recommended
