Doing what you love is not for faint hearted

I have mentioned this before so many times that writing on this blog is one of my favorite things in life. Here I just share my true feelings and I let out everything. This is just a short post as I am really very occupied with work these days. I don't think I was this busy before. I have so much work that sometimes I get little frustrated but end of the day I feel satisfied that this is exactly what I wanted to do when I started my company. When you start a business doing what you love and also earn money from it is the the best thing. There are times in the week when I feel little tired and exhausted but I am learning how to keep a balance of things.

I am working hard everyday trying to build a stable company. When I look back 3 years back I remember I had the same feeling. That feeling of restlessness, instability and an urge to do something more, better. Once you achieve your short goals then you should not stop but set new challenges for youself, this is how you grow.

I have grown my startup really well in the past 3 years. My turnover has increased 10 fold and I now have good client base. I am still not satisfied with that as I have some difficult goals to achieve in the next 3 years.

If you want to start your own venture then the first things you should do is to become very strong mentally. Without focus and determination you can't do much. You have to be ready to give sacrificies - that means giving up things that gives you comfort and pleasure. I have hardly seen a movie in theatre in the past 3 years, I stopped watching Television, reading newspaper. I stopped being in touch with my friends. Earlier I used to spend regular time hanging out with friends atleast 3-4 times a week now I don't even talk to them regularly, this is not good thing to do but you can't have fun as well as start a company at the same time. It is just not possible. You have to be ready to give your 200% in it. If you really want something badly then you need to give up everything else in life. If you can't make that sacrifice then no point starting up, just go back to your normal 9-5 job and stop cribbing.

These days I am starting some really nice Drupal projects. I am going to be even more busy in the coming few months. I hope I will be able to find time to write.

Bye.
