This is pulled from the article "what successful people where doing at 25".
I enjoyed the quote from Richard Branson which I uplifted for my diary:)
Those early years were tough, he told Entrepreneur:
"I remember them vividly. It's far more difficult being a
small-business owner starting a business than it is for me with
thousands of people working for us and 400 companies. Building a
business from scratch is 24 hours, 7 days a week, divorces, it's
difficult to hold your family life together, it's bloody hard work and
only one word really matters — and that's surviving."
This quote is a reminder of the many times the company(Wasamundi) I'm trying to build with my pal @quincy_k was at the tipping point. Many times we came to the point where we said this is it. We are death. But each of these times something happens without our power to pull us out of the situation. I believe it's our deep instinct to survive.
I always repeat to my self, what is most essential is staying alive. If you die, no one would recall what you wanted to do.
Staying alive is the most important thing for an Entrepreneur. it's the most important thing in Life anyway.
