I am firmly convinced that invention in something that happens over long periods of time, by lots of very smart people, playing each others’ ideas against each other. I think there are very few eureka moments, very few genuinely new ideas. Marc Andreessen

Focus on something that has high value to someone else, be really rigorous in making that assessment, because natural human tendency is wishful thinking, so the challenge to entrepreneurs is telling what’s the difference between really believing in your ideals and sticking to them as opposed to pursuing some unrealistic dream that doesn’t actually have merit, be very rigorous in your self analysis, certainly being extremely tenacious, and just work like hell. Put in 80-100 hours every week. All these things improve the odds of success. Elon Musk

Should you check your email? This brilliant (and tragicomically true) illustrated flowchart by Wendy MacNaughton is now officially one of the best infographics of the year.

If you wander through this there is no option for ever checking email from co-workers.

No.

Of note: Apple’s 9M units sold over the weekend likely banked the company in excess of $5.4 billion in revenue, which would have ranked one weekend’s sales of one product line at #462 of the Fortune 500, exceeding annual revenues of companies such as Facebook, AMD, Priceline.com, Wynn Resorts, Charles Schwab, JetBlue Airways, and Yahoo!. http://matthew-lew.com/analyzing-fruit/ (via dariusdunlap)

In the final forty-five years of his life, Salinger did not publish any new material, despite reportedly writing every day. That’s right, he wrote things without immediately sharing them with the world, and I’ll give you a moment to tweet how strange that is. Stephen Colbert (via kateoplis)
