So it’s been a while since last post, meaning I’ve been busy. Things have picked up their pace, slowed down again, and then again moved forward rapidly. About 10 times..
Most entrepreneurs talk about the experience as a roller coaster. I like to think of it more as a manic depression state. In the manic state you feel like you’re going to change the world – many of companies set out to do exactly that – disrupt a whole industry and change the rules of the game (Square is a good example I guess). You really have to be a megalomaniac fucker to try that. In the depressed state you’re stuck, with no idea where you’ll get any money or users, and a faint memory of how you got there or why. Also, on top of that, the smallest event can through you from one state to the other, and it can happen as often as twice a day .
The trick is to keep the depressed times as short as possible, and focus on your mania.
