Life can be quite stressful when things get hard. That’s common sense. Life at an early stage startup, is frequently hard. There’s so much going on, and everyone wears tons of hats, it can get chaotic. Persistence gets us through.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
There has to be a light at the end of the tunnel for me to keep going. I need some reassurance every now and again that it’s worth it.
Today was a good day. Features worked (duh) that were supposed to work, and it just gave me a little light of encouragement.
