And maybe this is the lesson of Falk’s site. Sure, he could go work for an NBA team, and one day he might again. He could also sell Cleaning the Glass, or take a job with a media company. But for now he’s managed to find success and what seems like an ideal work-life balance by doing the exact thing he both most wants to do and is most interested in and most qualified to do.

And, in the end, isn’t that the dream?

Knowing the outcome infects us. We’re rational beings that think things are supposed to make sense. It’s very hard for us to wrap our heads around a bad outcome when we didn’t do anything wrong. Or that there’s a good outcome that’s just random. We’re really uncomfortable with randomness in that way.

When we were working on our own startup, back in the ’90s, I evolved another trick for partitioning the day. I used to program from dinner till about 3am every day, because at night no one could interrupt me. Then, I'd sleep till about 11am, and come in and work until dinner on what I called “business stuff.” I never thought of it in these terms, but in effect I had two workdays each day, one on the manager's schedule and one on the maker's.

Believe it or not, selling is more about understanding your client’s needs versus just the value that your product brings. Asking the right questions can help you better position yourself, prioritize your time on prospects that are actually ready to buy, and focus on the right people within a company. Make sure you ask questions related to the company’s priorities, the decision makers, and timeline of their purchase decision.

Invite discussion. The best board meetings are not a one-way communication from the CEO but rather a meaningful discussion with everyone around the table. The topics should not only include updates from the management team but also strategic questions you want to discuss with the board. Every board has it own dynamics, and as the CEO you want to make sure all the people are encouraged to express their opinions.

“The sense in the rest of Europe is bewilderment; how much worse can it get?” said Tomas Valasek, a former Slovak diplomat who lived in Britain for many years and now directs Carnegie Europe, a Brussels-based research institution. “After Brexit, no one is trying to help now. They’ve given up. Nobody on the Continent really cares that much about Britain anymore. Even worse, people feel the country will fall into the hands of Jeremy Corbyn and that will do more damage than Brexit itself.”

“The best machine learning and artificial intelligence any form cannot compensate for bad data,” he said. “Practitioners should be zealous in ensuring they feed their algorithms reliable data and, ideally, data that has not been scoured over by all of Wall Street already.  It is ‘new’ data combined with disciplined machine learning algorithms than that poses an existential threat to the status quo on Wall Street.”
