For Founders

Let’s talk about purposeful organizations, the overwhelm of too many sources of information, and what errors to avoid as a founder.

[I]n an information-rich world, the wealth of information means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.

Herbert Simon, Designing Organizations for an Information-Rich World

The most precious thing a Founder has is their time and attention. Do you know where yours is going? And can you prove that it’s going to the right place?
