RIDING THE HIGHS .. surviving the lows

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no 'brief candle' to me.


The above quote was from George Bernard Shaw who was an Irish playwright, critic, polemicist and political activist.


Coming to running a business, the highs of achievement and the lows of failure will be have to be negotiated, even more so for a start-up or in the initial years.


The more difficult part is in self-assessment about how much to rely on highs achieved and how seriously to take the low points encountered.


In other words, over-reliance on the positive feelings about successes and disregard of portents of failures would be equally harmful.


These are all normal milestones for which there are no guides or text books or even shared experiences. To this extent, this is therefore the trickiest part of the journey.


This phase of business encounters a thin line between hope & experience ; between conviction & reality, between plans & outcomes.


You will find THE SECOND OPINION a good source of advice, guidance, motivation and assessment at all stages of your business journey.
