Comment: "I have learned that my opinion has a multiplier attached (like -.5 perhaps)"

This comment by Chris was on "People tend to like their own opinion more than your opinion" - a bit of an older post, and a nice comment, I thought it was worth making sure everyone saw it -

Hey Sebastian, nice post and nice blog! I'm a new reader this week... As it happens, I am a single founder as well but already have some investors / experienced startup guys on board. And every time we have a difference of opinion, the scenario you describe plays out anew! I have learned that my opinion has a multiplier attached (like -.5 perhaps), and the multiplier is significantly smaller then theirs. :) Over the last couple of years I've really struggled with the line between listening to their advice and taking it even when I think there's a better way. One big example stands out where they thought I should do A, I thought we should do B, and I had tons of research to support my ideas. We did B, and when the dust settled I was completely wrong. In the end we learned from it and failing is where you practice succeeding, so I don't hold it against myself. You have to take risks and put yourself on the line. But the lesson reduced my stubbornness by a lot and these days I try harder to understand the voice of experience, and really question my ideas before I get attached to them.

Good stuff here.

T-Mobile Might Pay for Families to Leave Competition

On Imported Blog

T-Mobile USA CEO John Legere recently got kicked out of a AT&T party, possibly causing this out of anger. Rumors are suggesting that T-Mobile may soon make it easier for customers to switch to the UnCarrier plans from rival operators.

This advertisement which briefly appeared on T-Mobiles website before it was pulled, says the company will "pay your family's termination fees when you trade in your devices," possibly attempting to lure customers from going to AT&T who is offering T-Mobile customers up to $450 to switch to it's NEXT plan.

The small print states it will accept ports from AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint for up to five lines. This initiative seems costly, but the company will make money back by requiring people switching to trade in their existing smartphones and choose new phones on it's UnCarrier plans. Expect T-Mobile to explain the amount it is willing to pay at their CES event.
