What if entrepreneurship wasn’t just about what you create, but who you become along the way?
Most people look at entrepreneurship as a quest, a desire to create something from nothing. The goal, to get to a substantial, viable, impact and revenue generating place as fast as humanly possible.
On a daily basis, the life of the entrepreneur ranges from intentional meandering, testing and “pivoting” to violent, non-stop jags, head-spinning problem-solving and night-sweats. And that’s when things are going well!
If your goal is simply to get swiftly to the end-state, you are going to suffer more than needed. You are also going to miss a huge opportunity for grace and growth. And you will likely ignore many critical signposts and possibilities that would’ve made the experience profoundly different in a way that’s better. For you and for what you’re trying to create.
What if you approached entrepreneurship not as a mad-dash, but a daily practice?
How might that change both the way you experience it and your likelihood of success? That’s what I’m talking about in today’s Good Life Project Riff.
