2) Gluttony: Many ideas makes mayhem. More startups die from idea gluttony than starvation. [tweet]

3) Greed: Pure pursuit of profits is perilous. Pick a problem you're passionate about. [tweet]

4) Sloth: The lazy shall languish in obscurity. Toilers triumph. [tweet]

5) Wrath: Don't get angry with your competitors. Attack the problem instead. [tweet]

6) Envy: Do not copy others out of envy of their strategy. Be yourself. [tweet]

7) Pride: Hubris kills. Humility has a power all its own. [tweet]

Which of these "sins" are you committing?  Any others you'd add to the list?
