Someone asked in the Rodinhood Open House- If there is an impossible task ahead, should an entrepreneur even attempt it?
And I said, isn’t it true that we are all living someone else’s dream today? Someone dreamt of the impossible, like putting a man on the moon. Someone else attempted it and another made it possible. Imagine the dream of the man who wanted to put a few people on the aircraft and fly them across oceans. Must have sounded incredulous at that time. Today, we are living that man’s dream. Therefore, unless the impossible is dreamt, imagined, attempted and gone after with a club...it will never become possible!!!
Unfortunately, entrepreneurship has become all about safety in numbers, excel formats showing a perfect play of digits. It should all match up! Its certainly desirable to get the maths right and have a plan. But, isn’t it also fun to go after what your heart really desires? To dream an impossible dream? Pursue what excites you, what you are passionate about?
Yes, its a risk but certainly a risk worth taking if you are the kind who gets a high from living your dream and seeing it come true...:)
