“In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add,… ” – Antoine St. Exuprey

“…but when there is no longer anything to take away.”

To celebrate the coming of 2014, I share my favorite quote.  It speaks to everything.  It’s about simplicity in all you do.

For the entrepreneur, it’s about your Minimally Viable Product and your feature set.  It’s about managing your time.  It’s about crafting your pitch, your mission statement, your strategy.

It’s about filtering out all the noise that distracts you from accomplishing your goals; email, Twitter, Facebook and those who don’t believe in your dream.

And perhaps, blog posts…

Happy New Year!

“If your mission statement is much longer than this sentence, it is probably too long” – Chris Guillebeau

December is the time to review the year and revisit your vision and mission.  You’re another year smarter now and you know more than you did a year ago.

A good mission statement is short, concise and captures the essence of why your company exists.  Someone who has never heard of your company should be able to understand what you do and why.

Keeping it short makes it easier to understand and remember.
