I kinda have a lot of questions in mind today. Please don’t ask what those are. Don’t want more questions.

Project 365+1: Time Constraints

20120225-204619.jpg

Today I have had the easiest exam I have ever taken in my entire life – relative, of course, to my level (uhm, elementary? haha). It’s safe to say, I took the exam without even reviewing (hello, party people last Friday night!). I am not saying this to brag. I bet even you too will be able to answer questions like: “What is the equivalent of 25% in decimal?” I know, even without any options given, you know that the answer is 0.25 (really?). What I noticed the entire time I was writing the exam is how, as an adult, I take things a lot seriously now and I pressure myself more than before. Of course, there’s ego involved as well: if I failed this, it would be the end of the world me! I’d be too ashamed to look at myself or be myself (my Leo side speaking).

But time constraints meant real life-changing events and opportunities in the near future rather than just passing the exam and get a handy-dandy-diploma. I guess I’ve really grown up.

If you think working on a startup is easier than being in school, you’re wrong. However, arguably, practically working on your future and learning while REALLY doing it is much better than pouring over books for four or more years to be a clueless slave in the real world.

Let me just say that despite the time constraints, I enjoyed today’s workshop. Getting other entrepreneur’s opinions is invaluable. At the same time, the fact that I build my confidence in the process is very helpful in the long run. It helps being self-conscious to be able to notice things about myself that I should improve – business-wise. 🙂

Project 365+1: Perspectives

Through a mirror or not? In layers or not?

Despite the lack of sleep today, I had to sit down to do some real work. Quite surprisingly, it didn’t require too much effort to focus myself. It probably comes naturally when you’re passionate about what you’re working on. Because I had to approach this particular thing from different angles, I had to distance myself from it. Sometimes, distance is necessary, even if it’s hard, to grow and to approach something with a new perspective. The reward when you figured it out? A fulfilled and energized feeling enough to last me the rest of the long boring day.

As expected, each one brought in their unique ideas. The session was very beneficial in a way that you get different perspectives about your idea or startup from other entrepreneurs and the incredible facilitator. Looking forward to the next two! (Gotta do my assignment :P).
