The Startup Way
It’s in our human nature to get used to the bad but also the good things in our lives. This is why we tend to miss the small and little things around us that makes our world beautiful.
Working on a startup is a very stressful way of life. It’s very easy to fall into a routine of 18 hours work day, bad fast food and an emotional roller coaster. You sometime ask yourself if this is the right way to live. If this choice we made is worth everything we need to give up for it.
Last week at the end of the DLD conference I managed to stand still for a moment and really look around. What I saw filled me with a very special feeling.
Around me I saw hundreds of very special people. People who really want to make a change. To build something. To do something that will have an affect on the world and the lives of all of us.
Living in the startup scene it’s very easy to get used to this kind of atmosphere and surrounding. It’s easy to forget how special it is. In three days in the DLD conference I had the real pleasure to meet more people like this than most of my friends will meet in a couple of years.
It’s this kind of special energy that surround us in the tech scene in the bay area, Tel Aviv and other places. A special feeling that everything is possible and that our dreams can and will always come true. It’s what drives us to go out and try to make a difference and it’s what make me know that there is nothing else I rather do and no other place I rather be.
I want to say thanks for all the great people I met in the last few years and to remind us all to sometime stop, look around and don’t forget not to take everything around us so for granted.
