There is no quick fix. There is no perfect marketing plan or crazy solution to go faster. It just doesn’t exist. This applies to business, life, anything. If you want to see results, you have to put in the work. No one talks about the basics because they’re not sexy. Which is funny, because all the best companies in the world are masters at them.

The Internet is saturated with all these ‘best’ ways to grow a company. Forget them. Stop reading all these ‘great’ ideas. Start focusing on yourself and your company. Ask yourself simple questions. What can I do today to grow my company? What has worked in the past that I can repeat?

It’s so easy to get distracted and try a million different ways to do something. In the end it all falls back on the fundamentals. Do the simplest thing you can, then repeat. Writing a blog post every day is a million times better than the most optimized blog in the world. Upgrading a tiny part your application each week is leagues ahead of creating a new crazy piece of functionality.

Once you’ve found your vision, go back to the basics. You’ll be amazed by the results.
