Lecture 14 - How to Operate (Keith Rabois) - YouTube
- focus on one thing: hard problems are hard, we tend to procrastinate and spend cycles on B-level problems and ideas; forcing focus forces you to work on A-ideas
- over-time you should be doing less editing, if that ratio is continuing to grow, the team is not growing in capabilities
- step 1: be excellent at something, step 2: be excellent at getting bunch of people to do something
- to avoid empire building: divide output by number of people; optimize that and be explicit at it.
