I used to sleep exactly 5.5hrs every day, now for a while, I am sleeping about 6hrs, where my target is to reach 6.5hrs. Adequate sleep is very important.

Cricket is the only game that I care, that I’m passionate about. Still this is just a game, and you should never take it too seriously. But we, as a nation, as a generation, do take it too seriously, which is very very wrong. I have publicly wrote about in past writing again. It’s game and there will be always win or loose situation. Pushing it too much as representation of a country is wrong. Maybe I am too young for such a profound philosophy, but I have this understanding also for my team, Bangladesh Cricket : The Tigers! For past 20 years we have seen how unpredictable games could be, and how hard it could be on your emotion if you consider it more than a game. And see one statement is still true for past 20 years – ‘We have long way to go’!
Though it’s kind of early, but I’m kind of certain Pathao is on track to become a Unicorn (Startup to reach $1 Billion valuations) in next 2-5 years, and possibly the first one from Bangladesh, and the sweet part it’s entirely homegrown, and by serving just Bangladesh!
“Knowledge and productivity are like compound interest.” Given two people of approximately the same ability and one person who works ten percent more than the other, the latter will more than twice outproduce the former. The more you know, the more you learn; the more you learn, the more you can do; the more you can do, the more the opportunity – it is very much like compound interest. I don’t want to give you a rate, but it is a very high rate. Given two people with exactly the same ability, the one person who manages day in and day out to get in one more hour of thinking will be tremendously more productive over a lifetime.

Medium is easy, I like that. But when they went too far in trying to break the market by bribing brands and trying to brand in a way that its better solution than WordPress, thats when it was not this simple. Medium is a hosted solution, could be comparable to hosted WordPress like WordPress.com or many others, but not the WordPress solution. To grow their brand and portray themself as better content solution they started to bring big publisher, and there are numerous report how they bribed brands, if those brand move from WordPress! Now they are in odd situation. All the people they hired to sustain that growth, are now out of jobs, they fired 50 employees, and shutting down 2 offices. Ev Willams accepting that the main industry that they want to improve, they have not got full grasp of that, and feels, its time to stop that and look back.
Understanding you product placement, and not overdoing is very crucial.
MailChimp recorded $280 million in revenue in 2015 and is on track to top $400 million in 2016, but they never raised a single dime from Venture Capital, wholly owned by Mr. Chestnut and his co-founder, Dan Kurzius — now employs about 550 people, and by next year it will be close to 700.
Raising money in Silicon Valley style, and running it the way Venture Capitalist pushes mostly teaches you bad habits from the start, and you end up being too good at spending money, via Showing-Up and also targeting Un-Natural Growth.
If somebody is really pissed at his Startup, he should take a break from his Entrepreneurial career, and get a job. This career choice “Entrepreneurship” is surely over-rated and not for everyone. Most people are good at following others’ lead or just be responsible for a specific task, instead of taking all the headache. They are good that way. Too much pressure from the Startup will be counter-productive for them.M Asif Rahman
