Recently, I realised that this environment could lead to the the downfall of new entrepreneurs.
After spending years, maturing in an environment where our schedules and attitudes were guided and governed by rules and regulations, we are now free! We are leaving the structured society and moving into a realm that provides more freedom.
This lesson hit me when an instructor posted a question to the class.
What if for a day, all the traffic lights were out of order, all the traffic police were on holiday, and all road signs where damaged? Would there be chaos on the road, or would our transport system function as per normal?
I believe that the former would occur. What about you?
Would u be able to endure the pain and survive to enjoy the freedom? or Would u self destruct once all the control over u were removed?
Are u getting into entrepreneurship, just to ‘slack’ and to escape from reality, or do you have an actual purpose?
Are you on holiday?
If you are just into the enjoyment, money and resources will run out one day. What would u do then? Go back to job-seeking? If so, u are not an entrepreneur. you are merely an employee on a long holiday.
How clear are you about your goals?
Are you an entrepreneur, or are you simply on a long vacation?
Now, that was a long post.
Hopefully that was useful for you. What would you think would happen if for a day, all the traffic lights were out of order, all the traffic police were on holiday, and all road signs where damaged?
Do you have the discipline to work long and hard at your business without any supervision? Share your thoughts about the importance of self control!
