Donald Trump is like a startup
He has a way of redefining the rules and having it at scale. He was not the popular candidate going in, but just like a startup, he has grown quickly.
Founders: Only your big problems matter.
Nothing else matters. Focus all of your energy to solve the big problems
Focus all your energy on solving 1-2 things.
"A+ problems" are extremely hard to solve, but solving "B+" problems won't create great companies.
A+ problems are the problems that are most important
Usually there isn't a clear path to solving them so people don't like to work on them.
B problems are usually easier to solve
It's easy to complete and thus you can check it off your to-do list. Startups need to focus on the A problems.
Startups cannot be operating in ambiguity.
First rule of startups is to FOCUS.
