Jason Shen made 8 highlights on The Hard Thing About Hard Things
As long as you have another way to look at a bleak situation, all is not lost
Netscape laid so much of the groundwork for the modern web!
Going public when you have just 3 weeks of cash left is 😬😬😬
Sometimes you have to knowingly sell the wrong thing to get to the right thing.
Hard times are more bearable when they are imbued with meaning and purpose.
Great product people don't just build what's asked for. They build what matters. (Though often only founders / executives have the political capital to make such big bets)
People don't need a cheerleader. If you've hired courageous people who understand the risks, they'll appreciate the straight talk more.
Sometimes you gotta just grind your way to a win.
