Founders all know that focus for their company means defining what not to do.
But sometimes we see founders who are not applying the same principle to their own personal life.
Personal side projects on Github. Writing a PRD for the next company while this company hasn’t exited yet. Angel investing as a fashion.
The thing is, founders are humans and there are many things they need to do outside the work anyway: Taking care of their body, keeping healthy relationships with family and loved ones, etc. As humans, we all come with 7 side hustles built in.
So for the work part, define what not to do and jettison them – apply the same principle for your company’s success to your personal life.
