Do things that don’t scale

This week, I present to you another famous article in the world of startups.

​Do things that don’t scale by Paul Graham.

Paul is one of the most prolific entrepreneurs/investors of our time. Among other things, he helped found the startup accelerator Y Combinator.

The idea behind his article is that startups take off because founders make them take off.

There may be a minority that will grow on their own, but it usually takes a big little nudge to get them started.

It then presents a list of examples of well-known companies that had to do laborious actions at their beginning to get their project off the ground.

It’s a must read to put into perspective what it really takes to have a chance at success.
