The cure for my delusions

I’m an entrepreneur, which means I’m a bit delusional a lot of the time. TWIST is my weekly inoculation against a complete reality break.

My first delusion is a delusion of grandeur.

My company is making a product that can save dying media giants, and also power up content creators and rights-holders. Big promises — but I know I’m right, because I know what the media business needs. But TWIST gives me guest after guest, week after week, who also knew they were right. Sometimes they were, and sometimes they weren’t. That’s humbling.

Sometimes, I get delusions of persecution.

More than one article references the “media bloodbath” that’s coming, and I see competitors everywhere. Jason gets his guests to talk about what the audience needs to hear: the real details of how to get serious about product market fit, growth, and getting the resources you need to reach take-off velocity. Then I don’t worry about my competitors; I just worry about doing the work.

This podcast is a non-negotiable part of my routine. It has saved me from making tons of mistakes, and it gave me the reality check I needed to walk back some mistakes after I made them. It taught me about handling investors before, during, and long after the investment is made. I trust it as a source for further links, books, products and blogs.

The one delusion I don’t want to be taken out of is the shared psychosis. As a founder, it’s my job to bring my team into my delusions, and sometimes that’s hard. They’re very practical people, and resistant to pie-in-the-sky promises. That’s no good — I need them crazy. So when their resolute practicality is bringing me down, I have a trick I use — I share a link to TWIST. And I know they’re going to show up at work the next day, just as unrealistic as they need to be to build tomorrow’s unicorn.
