Focus is about saying no to 1,000 things

Great video by Steve Jobs on Focus.

Focus is not about what you say yes to, it’s about what you say no to. Read more about our thoughts in our book Startup Focus. 

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying “no” to 1,000 things.

Hey I'm Mick, Pollenizer Co-founder & Mr Focus. I've learnt so much in the last ten years working on startups: - Focus makes everything easier, better, stronger; - You can't learn by thinking, only by doing; Team are critical; - Success is more about character than ideas. I love startups. You learn very fast and you can make an impact with one days work. You work with motivated, optimistic people. You see the first ideas, first products, first customers, first revenue. Some past businesses I've worked on include Spreets, Dealised, Oomph, WooBoard, Posse and Coachy. In my spare time I surf, play soccer, play basketball, have been known to partake in really bad karaoke, love travel, cooking and being a Dad.
