I’m not sure. In the next two years, I know that I will be finishing my last two years in university but what about the next three? And in those two years alone I’m not even sure what is really ahead for me. About 5 months ago when I decided that I wanted to venture into entrepreneurship, I knew that it was going to be difficult. Here I am in June, my mid-year check-in and we haven’t made much progress. What’s wrong? Not enough time was intentionally spent on it. At the start, I was spending at least an hour of my day on market research but along the way, I got extremely distracted by my other priorities. The time spend on our side project started to dwindle. But I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
I’ve come to realize that in order to move forward, I should 1) spend less energy beating myself up on not “doing enough” and 2) continue to create realistic goals for me to complete each day, baby steps. As my lecturer once said, if you don’t start pushing the ball, how do you expect it to roll?
Since LNP and (very soon) Ubin Unite is coming to an end, I have less of an excuse for not putting enough time into my business idea. Honestly, I think it’s time for me to realise when to let go of my ideas too and start again at the drawing board.
What is your beachhead market? What’s their budget, urgency, priority, access?
