I just did an interview on the FD Blog and in it I talk about the importance of patience and urgency within startups. Urgency is necessary when it comes to the product, but there are also times when you need to let things flourish over time. Interested to hear how others have experienced this balance. What has helped you maintain a healthy patience/urgency balance? And how do you know when to lean more towards one than the other?
Set regular milestones, so that you recognize your progress and where you on your long-term plan.
