The sky is slowly lightening, the stars starting to fade away.
I have to get out of bed and get to the airport this morning. But all I can think is: what if I just stayed in bed?
It is most frequently this moment that makes it the hardest to be an entrepreneur. Those earliest morning moments. When I’m tucked into my cozy bed, my girls have inevitably found their way between J and I and are sprawled so exasperatingly but perfectly and everything is just beautifully still.
When I know that as soon as I get up there will be all the things on my phone and the logistics of travel and meetings and …
But none of that exists right now. Right now there is peace. Right now is when my mind finds an opening to ask the question I don’t ask the rest of the day: why I’m doing this all anyway?
That’s when I know it’s time to get moving. Because momentum is literally and figuratively the only thing that helps. If I’m moving and just focusing on that next tiny step, then I’m not questioning. Not doubting.
People often want to know what it’s like to be a founder. This. I want to tell people that it’s a million moments like this. Doubts and questions fight to be heard and I listen but then tuck them away.
And get moving.
