Was talking to a senior/friend today about the projects that I am involved in. There were a few things he said that captured how I felt since I started out working on my projects, which I think a lot could not relate to:
1. Entrepreneurship is a lonely journey. I think only those that have been there and done that would only relate to this statement. Many a times, I have to depend on my own judgement, and discipline myself to make progress to the project that I am working on, if not, there will not be any progress. There is noone to tell you what is right, what i wrong, what needs to be done, what should be done, what can be done or what should not be done.
2. When there are life forces giving you pressure (such as family commitment, loans, girlfriend etc), it limits and takes away your space to be creative. So one should appreciate his/her time in university where there is so much space to be creative and to be free of all life pressures. Especially when after graduation, you have to provide for your family as well as to pay for your school loans, entrepreneurship is usually not an option.
There were a lot of things that he told me that only I could relate on. Like we have to be individualistic to work on what we believe in, and we have to move faster than what others are moving.
