Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders: Joshua Reeves

The Startup Journey: A Marathon, Not a Sprint

Joshua Reeves, co-founder and CEO of ZenPayroll

I love the Stanford Entrepreneurial Thought Leader Series! (“ETL”) So many smart peeps sharing visions. Payroll sounds important, but dull to me! But Joshua Reeves really has powerful insights into how things work and how we can achieve not just “success” but “satisfaction.” In the latter portion he talks about the importance of scheduling your time, “otherwise you’re just reacting to whatever’s happening.” I don’t know about you, but I spend so much time just reacting to whatever’s happening! He also notes that he assumes there are always 1,000 good ideas, so it’s never about “what can we do,” but about “what’s most important for us right now.” Again, it may be an “entrepreneurship” talk, but I think so many of his ideas apply to our never-enough-time art careers too.
