Building a startup requires focus. The world we live in has all the ingredients for distraction. It is easy to get lost at events and announcements. It is easy to get lost in replying to unwanted calls and emails.

What keeps most successful ones going is taming this noise. A sense of understanding to mute unwanted chores.

A startup has a team, the pain it’s solving, and customers who are paying. We have to focus on these before anything else. Everything else is noise.
