Starting a business is hard, really hard – I have heard this stated in so many different ways, but I have come to see the reality a bit more of late. The past couple of weeks have been very busy, so haven’t even had much thought for blogging, and the intensity might not let up anytime soon.
Not much else
The amount of time that which I have been focusing on takes, is insane, to this extent – one of the things stated about startups is – when starting a startup, there are only two things you can have: (a) Startup and family or (b) Startup and friends (c) Startup and your health… Basically – beside the startup, one does not have much time for anything else. Its one of those you hear, but don’t really give much thought, but last week I was reflecting on how much less time I have used in interpersonal relationships – I’m already bad in that, but recently its just been worse, even had to apologize to my lil Sister about my distance (I keep in touch with her more than any other).
At least today I finished updating one of my apps, but still more to go. I see not less, but even more activity ahead in the coming weeks and months, actually in all honesty, were it not for the issue of my health, I would be doing even more than I am now, would be even more aloof probably. But one thing that issue has helped with is for me to realize – I cannot do everything on my own; thankfully in the next phase of my work I shall have assistance in the work, so burnout is mitigated. But still a lot to do :).
I say it with a smile, but its gonna be torture. One other quote about business is – “Starting a business is like chewing glass and staring into the abyss.” – Can’t really explain that, but I get it, and anyone who ventures into such will also get it.
So don’t know when I will be posting here more again, but for the next coming weeks I would say look out for posts on the work I’m doing on missionarycoder.co.za/blog.
