Making progress, skimming the molasses

by oneafrikan on September 12, 2009

Yesterday was a good day.

As an aspiring social entrepreneur and increasingly part time geek, I’ve had my theories on why technical / programmer / geek / web type people stick to certain kinds of focus areas when trying to make a living for themselves, and yesterday an intuition I’ve had for some time now was reinforced.

Things I realised:

  1. Most industries have been working just fine without the internet for much longer than I’d given them credit for, so start operating on different levels
  2. Competition is everywhere, learn how to deal with it and be better than it
  3. The only limits to what I thought was possible were in my own head
  4. Business is like an onion, you have to unravel it

So the take home is that after figuring out one or two things, I’m starting to move faster and not feel like I’m walking through molasses = progress.



4. — sometimes it will you make you cry, but one never stops cooking because of that.
