I think that the entrepreneur’s job is to fight entropy: entropy towards churn, towards things breaking, bad relationships with coworkers, etc.
These things are bound to happen, sooner or later. It’s just entropy.
As an entrepreneur, coronavirus is just another thing that was unavoidable in this reality, that we have to fight.
When you think about entrepreneurship in this perspective, all humans are entrepreneurs.
That’s why in the coronavirus emergency, everyone can benefit from thinking and approaching problems as an entrepreneur.
Here is what I’m personally thinking:
- No one will save me. I can only save myself.
Don’t make the mistake that you can rely on others, especially governments, to save you. No one will.
If you have been making bad decisions in the past, probably your current reality is the compound effect of those decisions and thereby, negative. The good news is that you can start making good ones right now.
- While I am on a quest to find a solution for a problem, I see every obstacle, every bump in the road, as an opportunity: an opportunity to differentiate myself from my competition, and above all to learn new things and grow as a person.
Reframe a bad situation as a good one.
- I’m excited to invert the trend.
Think about this: if you can invert the trend, if you can make your bad situation a good one, how much more confidence can you have? The more excited about that you are, the more you think about it. The more you think about it, the more solutions to your problem you will see. Eventually, your vision of the “good situation” will become a reality.
