Running a startup is sailing through utter chaos.
Every day comes with its surprise.
It is not for a faint heart. We have to live each day as it comes.
Keeping a castle or future hope makes life more miserable.

What helps is knowing the challenge and belief of moving forward and learning from the mistakes. It is also about not letting everyday rejection or small wins get over our heads.

Eating well, yoga, exercise, and the company of dear friends act as medicine. And if you end up with a good team as a byproduct of robust culture, sailing becomes less painful.

We all have incentives for stating our own: knowing what we don’t want also helps.
