One of the most dangerous traps an entrepreneur can fall into is to get unfocused and spread thin across too many things they can do. The old saying is a mile wide and an inch deep. An entrepreneur friend once told me that the venture capitalist that funded him made him see the wisdom of “focusing like the point of a pencil” to get one product to market, because entrepreneurs consistently underestimate how much energy and focus it takes to accomplish that feat.

I am a man of faith, and a man of science. For me, scientific and spiritual views are compatible. Otherwise, how else can you answer these questions:
- Why is there something instead of nothing?
- Why are we here?
It’s truly amazing if not a miracle that the universe follows mathematical algorithms so precise that we can use these algorithms to land a man on the moon. Both science and spiritual are at work here, because something must be behind all this. It could not be a random accident.
I don’t know the answer, but I have “faith” that there is a profound truth behind it all that is outside scientific explanation.
