Experienced professionals will tell you you’re on the wrong path. But founders can see something they can’t. If you’re moving forward on sheer passion and desire and everybody else is saying no you’re probably not on a path to victory. But if you’re playing three-dimensional chess when they can only see two, you’ve got a chance.
I disagree on two points:
1) Someone can predict your next chess move, so create your own damn game where only you know all the moves.
2) Everyone is playing in 3D these days (or makes a good impression of doing so), so leap into 4D.
