"Those playing a long game did just fine. Those trying to optimize for short term gains, or then short term declines, had a pretty rough time." - Brad Feld

"I have no idea how to know when the correction is coming before it comes. All I focus on now is how to play a long game that doesn't matter when the correction comes." - Brad Feld

"There is a lot of old in investments. For example, the typical term sheet looks almost exactly the same way a term sheet looked in the 1980s!" - Brad Feld

Re: Boulder Shouldn’t Municipalize Its Energy Utility System - http://www.feld.com/archive...
"From an email I received today from a Boulder citizen. I agree with you the the Electrical Utility direction of the City is likely a waste. How city funds are being spent or should be spent is of great concern. Funds should be spent on items that need rehabilitation and not on chasing after functions that are working quite well at this time, such as Xcel. Many of the things that need desperate fixing are not known to the general public and in some cases, not even to Council. For example, many people are unaware that: The main 42" diameter sanitary sewer line which is 7 miles long running to the wastewater treatment plant has recently been inspected for the first time in 50 years. The inspection result indicated that it could collapse and send 12 million gallons of sewage every day into Boulder Creek. Council is casually thinking it's okay to fix this sometime between 2015 and 2020. It really is an emergency. Much of the neighborhood flooding happened because some creeks are so full of..." - Brad Feld

"Comment via email from a reader. Kudos to you and Beth Hartman for your opinion piece today! Several of us have expressed similar views over the last month, including the letter yesterday, "Don't give city more money to waste" and my letter of 09/14/14 below, "What's the limit on municipalization?" When voters approved the ballot issue, I don't think they intended the city to pursue municipalization at any cost. Minneapolis has seemingly reached a practical, sensible deal with Xcel. Boulder, on the other hand, has budgeted for two years of legal fighting in a risk-fraught process spread over a much smaller tax base and has borrowed $4M more in the meantime. Outside of Boulder, Xcel is viewed as a hero in green energy generation. As I said in my last letter to the editor, "I am not willing to give the city a blank check to endlessly spend my money." -------------------------------------- What's the limit on municipalization? I was pleased to learn that Councilman George Karakehian went..." - Brad Feld

"I completely agree that many C-level execs are not great leaders. The ones you listed failed, and their companies failed for a variety of reasons, but I wouldn't refer to any of them as "leaders", certainly not "successful leaders."" - Brad Feld

"I have eliminated excuses from my life completely. When someone is blaming me for something that I have nothing to do with, I often say "I'm happy to take responsibility for all the failings in the world." This often changes the conversation to a productive one." - Brad Feld

"I think you are missing the point of this. I know numerous people who are victims of circumstance who take responsibility for their lives and shift to a leader mindset, even under very challenging circumstances. There are magnificent examples of this in contemporary society as well as throughout history. Sure - there are plenty of victims ranging from "I was hit by a car" to "I was born without arms." But how you approach what happens next is what makes all the difference." - Brad Feld
