Commercialisation and the building of companies is a thankless task.
There is always more to do and more that could be done. When the limits are your own imagination and you have a creative streak there is nothing that places boundaries to the number of avenues and options that could be pursued. This all creates a huge mountainous workload and when you are close to it, it can feel overwhelming and that there is only slow progress, and never any respite.
I was explaining this just yesterday to a great mentor.
She quietly replied there might be a mountain in front of you, but sometimes you should look down and see the mountain of achievement that you are standing on to get to this point.
She was right…..
Celebrate all your achievements, don’t shy away from the challenges and be realistic about what it takes to get to the next level. And sometimes, just pause and look at the view.
