How an Entrepreneurial Venture Becomes a Success
It’s been a while since my (epic!) “Helllo, World” post, I know.
Actually, i’m not satisfied with myself. Planning to write 100 posts by the end of this year, means that having only one post written by March is somewhat unwanted. But, we are where we are, no point to cry over spilt milk, right? Water under the bridge, etc.
So, the last few weeks have been the peak of an emotional turmoil that I have been going through for a long time. It hits me every evening. The understanding that I did not accomplish anything that is helpful for me. That pushes me towards my goals. Sure, some days I am hyper productive in the eyes of me employer, and perhaps even save him hundreds of thousands of dollars on a REALLY good day, but it stopped affecting me. I’m not exited by saving other people’s world anymore.
The Benefits of Entrepreneurship
Generally speaking, i’m capable of doing something boring for days and weeks in a row – as long as I know that there is a benefit for me in it. It can be merely an intellectual benefit, not necessarily economic one. Actually – I pick interesting, meaningful or teachful (lets just say it’s a word) over well-paying every time. But now, or actually for the last few months, I reached the point where what I do is neither interesting nor challenging. It’s just a routine, mundane routine in a professional field I never liked, in a role I never enjoyed. Only thing i still learn every single day from my colleagues and bosses is internal politics. But, unfortunate as it probably is – that is the one this I despise the most in work environments.
In my core, there is no doubt – I am not made for 9 to 5 jobs. Add the fact that I’m not physically able to sit for many hours – due to some health problems that I might refer to from time to time, and you understand why my soul is 100% entrepreneurial. Actually, I only took my current day job as it was supposed to help funding a new company that I was co-starting, but somehow 2 years have passed by, and I never found the time to start that company. Actually, in these 2 years, I never found the time to start… anything!
I started my current day job to help fund (and find) some passive income.
But seeing that:
- I have time for nothing else besides it
- I bloody hate it and unable to find fun in it
Let’s face it – maybe it’s time to move on?
