The start-up roller coaster... Not exactly for the faint of heart.

November 19th, 2013, 12am

It was 5°C with few clouds. There was moderate breeze.

I did a small sketch of how this start-up adventure feels. I have awesome days when everything seems to work, and I feel everything is possible. But just like that, it can all break down, and in no-time I feel that I’m lost and doubt deeply about myself.

I have realized how strong you have to be to keep self-reflecting the whole time. Critics, advice, your own point of view that changes constantly - as if you had ADD- it all keeps revolving in your mind.

It’s tough, not gonna lie, but then again, when things start to work the feeling is just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! (Even if it’s just for a few hours or days before the next depression comes your way)

Paul, Samuel and Jenn said thanks.
