Never do anything you don't sell.
Discard the superfluous. The fewer middlemen, the fewer decision-makers, the simpler the functionality, the easier it is to scale.
Everything has to be simple, and everything has to be for love.
It is important to think in terms of the market, not the company.
An entrepreneur has no superpower. It does not exist. A person just has to have a broad understanding of the world.
Between discovering new things and going back, always choose the former. Never be nostalgic. If you go into the old, only go there to discover something.
Don't settle for less.
I don't care what kind of business it is. What matters to me is that it should be interesting and have an impact on the world.
The most important thing is the focus.

There are practical books, which can be used to accomplish a specific task, and there are philosophical books, which can expand your understanding of the world.
