On Solitude Lost



As the inventor morphs into entrepreneur, precious solitude will diminish.


This is a paradox of becoming an entrepreneur:  you give up personal resources so that the enterprise will thrive, and then, years later, if you're lucky, you will enjoy greater resources.


The self-aware entrepreneur will recognize the need to optimize for solitude; to retain as much as possible and to create maximum return to the enterprise for every measure of solitude lost.
