How are you with ‘uncertainty’?

By Larry Chiang

I examine with morbid curiosity WHY FOUNDERS DON’T EXECUTE. I don’t rubberneck accidents on the 88, 80 or 280. Fender benders bore me. Startup postmortems fascinate me…
At the heart of why founders do not execute is “uncertainty”. Entrepreneurs sidestep what their VC mentors tell them.
Paul Graham, investor, implores “do things that don’t scale (BUT HAVE MOMENTUM d.t.t.d.s.B.H.M.)
Meme proportions will not be reached for the coolest of hash
Have you ever practiced how to execute in circumstances that weren’t 100% certain?
Uncertainty is made less uncertain if you as a CS major execute 6 “pop up internships”. They’re self-guided. Self-study. Each Pop Up Internship is 7 hours from beginning to end.
Me and my Olivia who works at CNN too!

I hope you’re good at googling Pop Up Internship #2 — It’s fun!! It’s “work an industry trade show”
This pic is me and Olivia at an industry trade show called “New York Fashion Week”. Steve Blank mentors is to “attend trade shows like they matter”. Professor blank recommended “Moscone”. I recommend Lincoln Center.
I also recommend “Yoga Journal Live”
Question: Im afraid.
Larry Chiang answer: just tweet: #dttdsBHM
Q: I don’t have a twitter and don’t know how to start. Eek, I’m 20 years old
Larry Chiang answer: networking with old people is important. If its important to you, then google “#LTMVTA”
