“An entrepreneur jumps off a cliff and builds a plane on the way down”.
Entrepreneurs are naïve sometimes, but they’re not idiots.
They’re also not superhumans.
They are just well prepared; clever; hardworking; creative; or all of those.
So please Reid Hoffman: don’t use this quote any more, you can do better.
Ps: a parachute is a far better & Leaner solution when jumping off a cliff.
