Better ideas

It’s impossible to be 10x smarter than someone, but it’s possible to be 100,000,000,000x richer. As a founder, it’s tough to execute 100x or even 10x better, but it’s quite possible to have an idea that’s 100,000x better. There’s a lot of leverage in working on the right thing.

Courtland Allen

I think a lot about this quote. The importance of working on the right things. It’s a tough problem to solve because really you only ever know the thing you’re currently working on deeply enough to know how good an idea it is. Everything else is more or less unknown. So you end up comparing something you know to something you don’t. I guess that just comes dowen to how confident you are in your current idea; how well it aligns with you and your beliefs.
