I read Guy Kawasaki's Art of the startabout entrepreneurship and start-ups.
There really is only one question you should ask yourself before starting any new venture:
Do I want to make meaning?
Meaning is not about money, power or prestige. It's not even about creating a fun place to work. Among the meanings of "meaning" are to
- Make the world a better place.
- Increase the quality of life.
- Right a terrible wrong.
- Prevent the end of something good.
