“We want to be the worlds largest online bookseller.” - sound familiar?
I’m in Seattle, so they are one of the backbones of our local economy.
After approximately a couple of decades they are known worldwide.
Sounds like a simple idea to be the worlds largest online bookseller.
But simplicity does not equate to easy.
Start-ups are hard. Really Hard.
What’s the definition of insanity? - Taking the same action over and over and expecting a different outcome.
(example: i keep restarting my PC to get Outlook to start correctly.)
The above video I made:
57 attempts in a row the first time before success.
3 attempts in a row the second time before success.
It’s a metaphor for starting a company.
If you are lucky, it takes you about ten years to get your first big success.
The next time it might take you two or three years, if you’re lucky.
Failures abound and yet you keep going.
