Recognizing that ingrained behaviors may not be of help to an entrepreneur is the first step towards adopting the right mindset. Un-learning habits from prior educational or corporate experiences is necessary, especially where these previous habits conflict with the fast, iterative nature of the entrepreneur experience. For instance, Michael, an entrepreneur working in San Francisco, has spent most of his professional life working in corporate software development. With his new venture, a mobile application development platform, he’s realizing that tendencies and habits from his prior experience may be preventing him from launching with anything but the “perfect product.” Sitting next to a younger entrepreneur who went from initial idea to first, and admittedly imperfect, product launch within three months, Michael realizes he’s struggling to un-learn these habits and to manage the tension of wanting to do it right and launching early to get feedback.
