Trello is a great tool

Trello.com is nicely done, efficient and very clear task management tool. You can use it for managing your weekly plans/tasks and you can create multiple boards and then moving task from the left to the right.

For example, you can have three simple boards:

  1. What need to be done
  2. What is done and in testing phase
  3. What is finished, tested and published

It is even efficient to follow Scrum methodology in a simple way – nice for small teams and their collaboration. We really like it and use it on a daily basis.

There is also similar tool from Google named Google Keep which I don’t like at all. UX from Google guys is for me always complicated, over featured and not user friendly.

 

Statistics about successful and brilliant people

If we look at any country or certain population we will see that there is always about 4% of extraordinary and brilliant people (experts in their field). This can be a big problem for smaller countries/populations. When we have a large pool of people (i.e. bigger country), or if there is a lot of people concentrated on a small place (like New York) then you have more probability to meet one of these. Usually, there will be also larger companies there, that are managed by one of these extraordinary people and that employ mass of the others.

It is also not the same if you have 2 million people in 20,000km2 (smaller country) or if you have them in 1,200km2 (in New York). New York wins definitely – bigger competition, enormous fluctuation, super busy “ants” at small place. Other side has also advantages, there is no rush, you will always find free place in interesting events.

Looking at the population of 2,000,000 people we need first to subtract old and retired and also very young population and we will get about 700,000 people that are actually working. From this we will have about 28,000 extraordinary people (4%) in all professions.

I inspected one small country and found out that it has more then 160,000 companies (not all owned by domestic people, so lets say there is 150,000 companies).

Conclusion:

If you meet in one day with 5 random companies there is a great probability that 4 of them are managed by people that are not extraordinary.

What is more beautiful: you don’t need to be extraordinary entrepreneur to have a great company (but is can be easier if you are).
