I know an entrepreneur who launched an online video platform in 1998. It never took off, and went out of business within two years. He still tells people he invented YouTube.

我认识一位企业家,他在1998年推出了一个在线视频平台。它从未起飞,并在两年内破产。他仍然告诉人们他发明了YouTube。

There were 18 Web search services before Google, and at least two of them were similar in the way they indexed pages online. I owned an application called Net2Phone in 1996 that allowed people to make online phone calls. That was years before Skype launched and became hugely successful.

在谷歌之前有18个网络搜索服务,其中至少有两个在网上索引网页的方式上是相似的。1996年,我拥有一个名为Net2Phone的应用程序,允许人们进行在线电话通话。那是在Skype推出并获得巨大成功之前的几年。

I once heard someone claim “There were 17,000 YouTubes before YouTube.” That means that there were 17,000 services that offered some way of uploading and sharing movies online.

我曾经听到有人声称:”在YouTube之前,有17000个YouTubes”。这意味着有17000个服务提供了某种在线上传和分享电影的方式。

In other words; nothing is new, everything is a copy of something, or at least an iteration on a previous idea. The difference between YouTube and the 16,999 companies that failed before it is a combination of several factors. Execution, focus, timing and luck are all part of it. And those factors can be as important as the original idea.

换句话说;没有什么是新的,所有的东西都是某样东西的复制,或者至少是以前想法的迭代。YouTube与之前失败的16999家公司之间的区别是几个因素的结合。执行力、专注力、时机和运气都是其中的一部分。而这些因素可能和最初的想法一样重要。

Airbnb is an awesome company, and the idea is brilliant, except that there have been tens, maybe hundreds, of other companies that tried the same thing and failed, or were just less successful. Their value is not in the idea itself, but the perfect timing and execution.

Airbnb是一家很棒的公司,想法也很出色,只是已经有几十家,甚至上百家其他公司尝试过同样的事情,但都失败了,或者只是不太成功。他们的价值不在于想法本身,而是完美的时机和执行。

Friendster came before Facebook and Orkut. Remember ICQ and MSN? How about Whatsapp? Geocities and Xoom made it possible to publish a homepage. WordPress was just an improvement on that original idea. Just like Tumblr is the new WordPress and Squarespace is the new Tumblr.

Friendster先于Facebook和Orkut出现。还记得ICQ和MSN吗?Geocities和Xoom让发布主页成为可能。WordPress只是对这个原始想法的改进。就像Tumblr是新的WordPress,Squarespace是新的Tumblr。

The goal isn’t to reinvent the wheel or come up with an idea that no one else has ever come up with. You can be very successful just taking something that someone else failed at and do a better version, at a better time.

我们的目标不是重新发明轮子,也不是想出一个别人没有想到过的主意。只要把别人失败的东西在更好的时间做一个更好的版本,你就可以非常成功。

If it worked for YouTube, Google, Facebook, Whatsapp, AirBnB and Skype, it could work for you.

如果它对YouTube,谷歌,Facebook,Whatsapp,AirBnB和Skype有效,它可以为你工作。
