The Struggle is where greatness comes from


Today, my son (who is just 14) pointed me to an insightful blog by Ben Horowitz of a16z.com.

Couple of interesting observations (Of course, I urge you to read the full blog):

  • Technology business is extremely complex – a game of chess rather than checkers
    • Interestingly another partner at a16z.com, Scott Weiss also referred to a successful entrepreneur “laying out a series of chess moves that reveal an even bigger ambition” in a recent Wall Street blog
  • When you are in a turn, focus on the road not on the walls !

Be strong & you will get through, with a little help + a dash of luck

Finally, I am glad to see that folks like Ben are interesting to the young generation … Kaushik (the son) has been encouraging me to start a company … May be I will …
