Don't Be First

I’m noticing that it doesn’t pay to be first anymore. The early bird gets the worm but the rest of the world exploits the scraps and learns from your mistakes. Innovation now means that someone else will come along and pick your advances apart making it better, faster, and free. Make an app, provide a service, but more importantly refuse to settle with what you did. Starting no longer gets you points. Continue to turn and burn or you will be yesterday’s news today.
