This is my first entry to the company blog! I just returned from a 2-week trip to the US. The other founder, A and myself decided to make a trip to New York City and Miami. It’s part vacation/break and it’s part to get inspiration for the business and life.
Why New York? New York City – one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. The place where you can be anybody, do anything and don’t feel judged. Just a simple walk on the street gave me plenty of ideas about the business, about running our startup and about life. I’m feeling refreshed, recharged, and most importantly, inspired.
Why Miami? Truth be told, A and myself love trance music. We were there for the Ultra Music Festival. Best of all, to soak in the Florida sun – the sunshine state.
My main take away from the trip – just do it. Whatever you are thinking of right now, whatever you have been thinking about doing, all the “One day, I will…”, “Let’s do … some day”, “One day I will call….”, just do it. (If there is one company that got their slogan right, it’s Nike.) Too much time and energy wasted on the “what if”s. I’m a firm believer that it’s better to make a wrong decision than live with indecision. No matter how wrong your decision turns out, something good will come out of it. Be it a life lesson learned, a closer relationship built, a story to tell, something good will always come out of it. You might have lost something or someone along the way, but if you look at it positively, you would have gained so much more. So ask yourself, “what am I waiting for?”.
Tell me what you think, I would love to read your comments! Here are some pictures from the trip, and hopefully some inspiration for you too.
