In Chapter 3 of 19 in his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, Boxee co-founder and head of product Idan Cohen notes success should be measured by the delta, or incremental change, from where you start and where you want to go. He notes this creates a great challenge for those born into privilege, who start at a much more advanced place and who have a lower penalty for failure. To Cohen, life is far less about planning and more about measuring personal progress based on where you are.
