Issue #142  (How to Remember Anything) 11/01/21

Suhail Doshi, founder of Mighty (a browser that purports to be 10x faster than Chrome), shared a Twitter thread with his suggestions for "The first 18 months of a startup". There are 22 Tweets in all, and he's also compiled them into a Medium post if you prefer this sort of thing in article format.

Suhail Doshi's advice on first 18 months of a startup

I like #3 in the thread, where he recommends asking an industry expert: "Why do you think I am going to fail?" which he calls gaining a 'brutal understanding' of how to move forward. Lots of other good suggestions in the thread if this is a topic that interests you.

Now on to this week's hand-picked productivity links!
