Rushing your start-up?Beware! It will lead to your downfall!
Don’t rush. Don’t rush. Don’t rush. When it comes to finding co-founders, take your time. When it comes to nailing the idea, take your time. When it comes to funding, take your time. Sometimes we mistake action with progress. And it is lonely sitting there all by your (Type A) self, wondering what you should do next. Do whatever you want (eat, go for a run, ping a friend, get depressed), but don’t let the world tell you that you should have figured it out already. If the time has not come, accept the fact that the time has not come.
Embrace criticism and ask for it. It’s not always easy to take, but you’ll be glad you did.While focusing on the finish line, don’t forget to enjoy the journey!
