Ready, Fire, Aim! - Mihail's Public Blog: Why

Monday, August 12, 2002


This is my blog on the strategy and business of startups -- Internet/techology startups as well as nonprofit startups since I believe they face the same challenges and issues, and because I'm deeply interested in both!

The name of my blog comes from a saying that became famous during the go-go dotcom days. One was expected to fire first and then aim because things were changing so fast and you didn't have a chance in hell to plan everything perfectly. While the pace of business has slowed significantly it is still true that you can't overplan things or get "planning paralysis" otherwise one's still liable to miss an opportunity.

Enjoy! And let me know what you think.
