IQ vs Execution and Flow of Sequential Inflection Points

by Larry Chiang on March 3, 2015

Larry Chiang’s 5th book, What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School, launched after a Harvard Law School keynote on the New York Fashion Week runway 09-09-2009. He knows how to sniff out grand openings and crashed them with his dog Baxter. As CEO of Duck9, he spearheads to effort to get college consumers get a FICO over 750. Post H.L.S. keynote, Harvard Business wrote: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School” (his latest post was done #shirtless as a yogi who “Sets an intention for SXSW“.

NY Fashion Week has supermodels getting a high FICO credit score because I supermodel on-the-side

Teams of academically smart engineers attempting entrepreneurship enthrall me. It’s a hobby of mine to sit First Chair Entrepreneurship. Yes, front row of a class on starting up a startup. I pattern recognize it to be a room full of first round draft picks. All 1st round picks must compete against ferocious UDFAs (Undrafted Free Agents )
True story. There are more UDFAs in the Hall of Fame than there are first round picks.

My low IQ is an asset bc I remember how difficult every step to multi-millionaire was

My pain is your gain.

So because I internalized each greasy rung, I am in perfect position to see which academically smart teams of engineers will “get out of their own brain” and execute in the real world. Execution can be felt by your team’s competition via “inflection points”. If you’re a newbie to “Speak My Language”, an inflection point is a major external deliverable that your team accomplished.

#ENGR145 vs ENGR 145. Similar to YC vs YC…


This article I wrote to help Stanford engineers identify and join a “unicorn” startup. Aileen Lee coined the phrase. Unicorn means a Billion dollar startup. Here is how to
– Be a Unicorn
– Join a unicorn
– Sniff out a unicorn
– later startup a Unicorn
My low IQ got to the right on the entrepreneur Bell Curve with the below two videos. If you go to Stanford, a bell curve is like a school that hands out grades below an “A-“
For example an “F”. is a bit ly I memorized that links to
These sushi rolls of California “krab” are huge and set the bell curve on size (not quality 🙂
CTCRTR is kinda my dovetailing five books (Harvard called it “The Fifth Epiphany” bc I wrote a blog post that’s the sequel to five books
– Crossing the Chasm [G Moore]
– Four Steps to the Epiphany [S Blank]
– Lean Startup [E Ries]
– Business Model Generation
– WTDTYAHBS [Mark McCormack]
End “The Fifth Epiphany”
Cross the Chasm From the Right = CTCFTR = #CTCFTR
