Whilst large organisations typically manage projects by thinking about ‘to-do’ lists, Gupta (referencing Sean Ellis) says that in startups it makes much more sense to think about ‘to-learn’ lists.
I like this distinction because it recognises the fact that growth-stage companies constantly come across new challenges that are not yet fully defined. As a technology Founder/CEO your role may change from designer to developer to salesman to recruiter to manager within the space of a year.
It’s difficult to know specifically what you have to do until you’ve started doing it, so think about what you have to learn instead.
