As an entrepreneur making decisions for your company, always go back to your first principles of what’s important to you and why you started in the first place

via WhatsApp Takeaway | Matt Mullenweg.

I do think the incredible performances/performance (say Steve Jobs as an entrepreneur or Twitter/Facebook as companies) are not good examples to follow: the incredible mix of competences, coincidences, nature and luck are difficult to reproduce as they are usually ‘out of standard’. So probably sticking to good practices and adding your own ‘first principles’ is a good way to go.
