Tim is all over the place with this article.

My main take aways are: Do fewer things, and weed out mediocrity.

Which, when you think about it, are two sides of the same coin.

One more variation on that theme: You can't get what you want till you know what you want. 

I did like this paragraph:

I did a good job setting the guiding star for the company. The company goals you’ve heard from me over the years — “Work on stuff that matters,” “Create more value than you capture,” “Change the world by spreading the knowledge of innovators” — really have guided us. Our principles have been the lodestone that have led us into new opportunities and markets.

I agree: do less.  I wish more people would practice this.
