A dialogue with Self – Part 1

Posted: February 10, 2006 in i_THINK_therefore_i_am, The_Entrepreneur_in_Me

‘Is there something amiss??… That energy.. that enthu… was it for real ???… Yesterday, was I really up to something.. or, was that influence of spirit??.. Oh! Wait.. I remember now.. Nope.. I didn’t have any alcohol yesterday.. Then what??… ummm???… so, it must have been Real… Coool, Now what?? If that was for real then how should I feel.. exhilarated??… but the thing is that this is simply not possible… Within an hour I have to leave for office… have to go there and do all the work they pay me for.. and this is the only truth… what else??’

Alas! Okay tell me then what should I do now??

“Get up from the bed and get ready for the office buddy… u can’t lie down and think for eternity. Look ahead.. you have a job that assures you certainty.. regular income, that can accommodate your extravagant life-style, can help you in settling up your liabilities. Get up man and start moving… your workplace is waiting for you…”

But???… okay let me share with you a deep secret of mine.. Buddy.. I don’t like this job.. and I’m sure that I won’t like any other as well.. as long as I am working for someone else.. for someone else’s company I will not like it… I don’t want to do any routine job.. Do you really want to know what kind of work I find most interesting and what I would have loved to do???
I want my ideal work to be challenging.. New challenges every day… every moment.. so that every morning when I get up.. I can see a new challenge in front of me.. I want to own responsibility for every act of mine.. I want to own my work.. I wish to run my own company.

“Hey.. hey bugger.. stop it.. cut the crap…and start moving.. you have got a lot or work to do. Remember that document.. you have to freeze today..?? You can’t afford to waste your time thinking all this..”

Buddy.. look at me.. I am serious.. damn serious.. and you know what I have been doing for the last few days.. How seriously we are thinking about this thing.. and you are just shrugging this idea of mine… Please… please understand me.. and suggest me what to do? Yesterday I came across this article from entrepreneur Rajesh Jain, which said that you have to come out of the shell and stop looking back if you want to do something of this sort.. It said that if you have got an idea and wish to start up your own company.. then please.. quit the current job.. and don’t look back.. He also talked about N+1 factor i.e. Entrepreneurs often falls victim of this N+1 cycle which is nothing but waiting for one more year before starting a company of their own.. Article said that till the time a person has got an exit route he couldn’t put his heart and actions completely focused on new start up…. Until it is a do or die situation one can’t do justice to the amount of hard work and focus any start up requires.. Article also said that it is very demanding.. and challenging.. Well, I don’t know nothing.. I just want to go ahead and do it.. I wish to take it forward… It is surely worth giving a try.. and I am going to do it.. That’s for sure.

“Well.. well.. If you are so serious.. then I think we shall get into more details.. Tell me now what’s your prime concern??.. What is the main hurdle if you are so sure??”

There are plenty my friend… plenty… I will share every hitch and concern with you some other day.. as the list is too long.. But today I would like to tell you that… I can see what I am upto.. I have always wanted to start my company.. and I swear I won’t let this fire die… Come What May.
