Inspired by Eames’ “Powers of Ten” I explore the scope and scale of plans and activities based on duration. I take a one hour duration as the starting point and look at a factor or 10,000 in each direction: from 1/300 of a second to 10,000 hours.
Pete Tormey moderates the Dublin/Pleasanton Bootstrapper Breakfasts® (along with Richard Moerschell) and fills in from time to time in San Francisco as well. I asked him what he felt some key benefits attendees gained at a breakfast and he sent me a great three minute podcast that I have embedded below. He identifies three benefits he see attendees gaining from the conversation at a Bootstrappers Breakfast:
- Being around other bootstrapping entrepreneurs renews your enthusiasm
- Serious suggestions from other attendees can spark your own creativity in addressing business challenges
- Comparing notes can give you peace of mind knowing that many folks are wrestling with the same issues.
