Managing a business.

Pursue your delight.

Once I had a very significant chat with a former manager, who had became a kind of mentor. Over lunch he let drop this little nugget:

"There a probably 17 major facets that someone needs to manage to run a successful business. Find the two or three that delight you and work hard at them. Believe it or not, there are people out there that get as much joy from marketing(!) as you do from creating software and hardware. Find people like that and let them handle the marketing."
