Great panel discussion in Adelaide last night at an event organised by global startup accelerator the ‘Founder Institute’ at The Moonshine Lab: ‘How to Start a Global Startup’.
Some great takeaways for startup founders include:
Taking action is far more important than just more planning.
Knowledge is power only if you use it to take action.
Recognise when continuous study such as reading books and listening to numerous podcasts, webinars and other online learning programs etc has become procrastination. Take action with the knowledge you have instead.
After you have trimmed down your initial long to do lists, list 5 important things you have to do the next day and do them.
Set your intention at the beginning of the day – many just use ‘system cards’ but you can be as creative as you like.
When you are stuck take ANY action ! AKA ‘be prolific not perfect’ !
Business coaches and mentors with startup experience in different industry sectors to yours will have more objectivity and benefit ! Don’t be afraid to vent on your business coach or mentor – that’s what they’re there for !
