We celebrate the heroics of Robert Scott and his expedition team in their race to the South Pole. He and his four comrades sacrificed their lives in an attempt for adventure and glory. Amundsen and his team relentlessly prepared and undertook a daily 20-mile march, no matter the weather condition. Flawless and boring execution that is often overlooked although they won the race. This episode is special, my AI voice was used completely to voice over the content of this pod. Did you notice? Say hello or help me by giving me feedback and ideas.

In this observation, I challenge the frequently used startup mantra, first-mover advantage. I briefly unpack when it works but point out the practical challenges the concept faces in reality.
