Well said, loved the 2 last paragraphs. Personally, I have been reflecting about this a lot lately and to me, it's more grey than black or white. A lot of factors determine how you can define work/non-work life. And you know me, work is who I am or I am who I am because I love work. Factors at hand in startupland: - stage of the company (5 people or 200) - support by way of members on your team, including Directors (delegate decision-making) - personal factors (I want to be 100% every time, I've accepted that my mom's passing has triggered a deep sadness that doesn't let me be 100% right now) - clarity in vision, mission and strategy - leadership style (hands on vs. empowering) - Prob a few more Good post, got me reflecting more.

A good early customer development technique is to ask your users/customers what alternative they were likely to choose if your service wasn't available to them

Great post. With commitment comes motivation. Not necessarily vice versa. (typo in "verses" in the last paragraph)

There's something flawed when a business says about itself that it is innovative. If no one's gonna buy your product or service, it's not innovation. It's an experiment.
