When things Fall apartThe hardest thing about being a CEO is that there are times when you don't have a good choice, only bad choices and worse choices, and you have to struggle to make a relatively better decision and make a move. The following examples are bad actions, such as layoffs, even a management, and a breakup with a startup partner. More times you don't have a flash way to solve your problem at once, you have to bite the bullet. In fact, no one is more your feelings, no one cares about these struggles and helpless. 5.

It's disgusting to make any decision. CEOs make decisions like this, one side is bad, the other is worse, and the outcome of all the tradeoffs is almost half to half, it's so hard and worse, if you make a decision, then the sound of support for that decision seems to be all right. Sometimes if you care too much about people's voices, A 70-to-30 decision will seem to be a 50-50 decision, because the opposition is always more loudly divided into two categories of managers, the first type is willing to set the direction of the company, while others are more willing to set the truth on how to make the company more efficient 8. First rule of Entrepreneurship:there is no rulesThe first rule of entrepreneurial ability is that there is no rule. The biggest problem is that the problems you face are not met by others, and there is no standard, difficult to judge, or a dilemmacontrollability, and the contradiction of creativity. If you give more freedom to your employees, you will lose control of your feelings, and if you have too many controls, your creativity and motivation will be even worse.Think in a different way and understand each other if you've done well before, how do you keep it? How to maintain after the scale becomes bigger? If the scale of the expansion is one-fold, the fact that a manager is doing is completely another job. Basically, if it's normal logic, it's always better to sell a company, especially if there are so many unknowns, it's risky to keep moving. But this is never a problem that simple logic can solve.If your company occupies an early stage of development and has a chance to take the lead, don't sell it. but easy to say, this standard is very difficult to judge, it is easy to fall into underestimating or overestimate their own misunderstanding, to tell the truth if you have this vision to do something else will be successfulWhy did the author sell his company Opsware?
