As an entrepreneur, you know that half your time is devoted to the daily hustle, making things happen, accomplishing goals.
In some cases, like myself, you may spend just a bit more than half your time.
The other half is looking ahead, knowing where you want to be and in what time frame.
For some entrepreneurs, overcoming the mental anxiety of uncertainty is the first big step.
Om Malik, a tech business writer six years ago, faced these uncertainties when he set up his own media site GigaOM. Om recalled the early day of his entrepreneurial venture to Ventureburn recently. He wrote:
“Those nights of self-reflection during the early startup phase exposed me to a lot of my own demons and made me realize how little I knew. The biggest outcome of that conversation was the realization that companies and startups are essentially a reflection of a founder. If a founder doesn’t realize that, then it is going to be extremely difficult to build a long-term business.”
