I hate a YAFO (yet another fricking opportunity). Yafos are distractions and wasteful. I am a strong believer in DAFTW (doing a few things well), rather than lots of things half-assed.

I don’t like to dabble either. Either I am all in or I am out.

For an entreprenure it is imperative that he stays focused on the opportunity on hand and not look for greener pastures, unless he has decided to fully pivot. Every opportunity has associated costs. These costs are immediate and while rewards, if any, are always delayed. Resource thin startups can ill-afford to waste any chasing yafos!

I have always lived by these values and they have served me well in life and in business. Here is button from an internal campaign in 1985!
