Kennedy promised Americans a man on the moon by 1970. He imagined an unlikely, yet possible, situation.

The Probable

  • In corporate America, you don't take risks, and you don't get things wrong.
  • This is why few large company execs function in startups

The Possible

  • In startups, great outcomes are never probable
  • Dreaming big is essential to starting and running a startup.

The Delusional

  • Some startup founders shoot for the impossible
  • They dismiss feedback and tests, and in the end create no value Great founders live in the middle - in the possible. Keep your eyes to the sky and feet on the ground.
