“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” ~ Peter Drucker
To imagine, to design and to build a world. And then to live in it.
The most difficult yet most rewarding activity in the wide(er) world of worlds. Another way of dreaming. Eyes wide open.
Who said that having a business is like having a child? Because it’s not just true, it is life-threatening.
Whatever life you thought you knew before the leap, is no longer an island. No longer yours, it’s now a continental ecosystem. Extended, awkward family. A free-fall, beating, edible utopia. You’ve got to be at least crazy.
The pregnancy of your idea is a dream. The birth, nothing short of exciting.
Then, enters shy and terrifying Life, that timeless blood that runs through hundreds of unpaid yet hopeful hours; the “failure after failure without lack of enthusiasm” kind of life — that’s the hard part. The mighty sweat. Hard, harder, hardest.
But, you know, maybe it’s not meant to be any other way. Edgar Morin said that pure thought can only survive at the temperature of its own destruction.
In the same way, the round peg in a square hole in the triangular heart in your chest, can only revolutionize the life in and around it, precisely because and not in spite of constantly tripping and falling over your lowercase self.
The Plan? To open doors without a key. And unapologetically but kindly let yourself in.
And blood is made from and for dreaming.
“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon seem inevitable.” ~ Christopher Reeve
