Forget about meetings. They are toxic. Don’t plan too much. Don’t hire people based on resume. This is only a few examples of unusual advice from 37signals owners– creators of Basecamp (project management tool), Ruby on Rails (online framework for programming), Highrise (contact managing tool) and many others.

great article and i agree. Growth may take you out of the role that you most enjoy. Let’s say you love the service aspect of your business or want to maximize the time you spend designing/writing/speaking/teaching/selling/creating/ or innovating. Building a bigger machine may require you to sacrifice too much of you your desired job in order to focus on the on business building tasks. thanks for sharing.

You're absolutely right - it's better to have a small company you feel passionate about than forcing you to run business that only makes you feel stressed and takes up most of your free time!
