Sam 发了条推说,以他的经验,预测创业公司成败的最好方法是,看它邮件里是在谈 “进展” 更多,还是在谈 “目标” 更多。因为你进步是靠 “做”,而不是靠 “准备做”,更不是靠 “准备好了准备去做”。

我想或许这个道理同样也适用于生活中,你平时说话,是说 “我做了” 更多,还是 “我准备做” 更多?

原文很犀利:

The most predictive part of a startup’s investor update email is the ratio of numbers to letters.

And more generally, whether they talk about progress towards technical/product/user/revenue goals, or any other kind of goals (hiring and raising money in particular).

You make what you measure.

“You get credit for moving towards the goal, not for getting ready to move towards the goal, and certainly not for getting ready to get ready to move towards the goal.”

– Sam Altman
