Enjoy the struggle

Having a startup might sound sexy, but is a rocky road.

You open your mind to absorb everything there is to know around your new idea. To shape it and to connect it right. This can quickly lead to a fully occupied brain – monkey brain -, lack of sleep. And as a result, a lot of thoughts but very limited action.

A startup is looking for new ways to replace old ones. It does not know if it will succeed. Having a startup is really a mental process.

To keep body and soul connected, you need to be harsh on yourself and divide time properly. Take time for a daily walk, eat well. Make it a priority.

Then follow your dream. Do it step by step.

Enjoy every little succes on the way!
