Awards. Whether you love ‘em or hate ‘em, they’re part of playing the game. While many people jump at the chance to be recognized publicly or featured in a magazine, other folks (including some of the best entrepreneurs that I know) shy away from the spotlight.

Design is more important than technology in most consumer applications - Dave McClure
Don’t fall into the trap of confusing activity for achievement. Pause during your day ask yourself: ‘Is this helping us build sh*t or sell sh*t?’. If the answer is no, then you’re working on the wrong things. – Christian MacLean
Create a legacy, not a job. Ask yourself: ’How do I want to be remembered?’. Your job, habits, and daily activities are important but focus on the things that build the legacy you want to create. In the end, you’ll be glad you did. – John T. Meyer
So for all the entrepreneurs out there making it happen each and every day – this one is for you!

But in the early days, our teams are along for the dusk-til-dawn ride, and we need to remember to take care of them, too.

Why I Spent 200 Hours Writing Culture Code Instead of Python Code dharme.sh/13dgmcY
— Dharmesh Shah (@dharmesh) March 21, 2013
HubSpot (especially Dharmesh) is one of the handful of companies that continue to inspire me as an entrepreneur. I was super excited to get a sneak peak of their brand-new culture code presentation (embedded below) this week, and it was so awesome that I asked if I could share it with the Clarity community.

By Erin Blaskie, Founder & CEO of Erin Blaskie Inc.
CEOs are a special breed. See, entrepreneurs have a desire to live a life filled with passion and purpose, and many of us thrive on the feeling of being needed.
And while it’s exciting and satisfying to know that you are producing a product or offering a service that is in high demand, the downside is that someone always needs something from you. No matter how many hours you put in, or processes you put in place, someone will always need a piece of you. And over time, the weight of these needs and expectations can begin to feel crushing.
