"Building a company is like eating glass", proclaimed Elon Musk and it is true! Ben Horowitz of Andreessen Horowitz wrote, "building a startup is stupidly hard", in his wonderful [and excruciating] book The Hard Things About Hard Things. Statistic says, about 85% startups fail at their first year of being. It means your chance of getting it right is extraordinarily slim.
However, there are knowledge and insight that you can take help of and use to your advantage. One of such sources of knowledge is YC Founder, Paul Graham-the man behind incredible success of Y Combinator. His essays are incredibly helpful for people who want to think about building a company and interested in finding science behind it.
Following, infographic by Anna Vital of Funders and Founders, is based on one of PG's essays on how founders should approach a startup. I hope this will help you in thinking about your startup and get things tick.
