I just finished reading Hello, Startup and wanted to sit down to reflect on my takeaways from it. In general, the book is about building a business - particularly a tech-focused startup - with pragmatism. But I think the takeaways can be generalized further than the startup world - and be written as ‘work on the right things at the right time in the right way’.
None of these points are particularly groundbreaking, but I think that’s the power of them. It’s a reminder that doing big things doesn’t usually take any measure of greatness - it just requires you to give it your sustained attention.
I liked a lot of the points in this book and found them to be highly actionable. Here are a few of the ways I’m implementing some of these learnings in my own life:
If you’re into tech and startups and think a journeyman’s guide to creating them would be useful, read the book.
Hi I'm Hamilton and I wrote / built this! I like doing lots of things, but mostly I like to build (and then share those buildings). Some things I'm currently building: art, software, and prose.
