Today morning I met with a performance artist and presented our lost&found service to her. As an engineer and a business person I love artists because they say what they fell. You can get to great lengths by doing what you know and can logically reason.
But there is a limit to logical reasoning.
At some point you have to take a leap of faith. You have to believe the feeling that what you do is good and act accordingly. This is my definition of art – the remarkable things that are only defined by feelings.
Business can be art in its purest form.
Today we had a constitutive meeting for founding a new company. Indeed a good way to celebrate the last two months of this million before 30 project. To leave out modesty to those who need it, we’re now owners of a new public limited company and I’m its majority shareholder.
Ask for the reasoning and you’ll get lousy explanations.
Ask for the feelings and you’ll see faces filled with love.
To commemorate the completion of our awesome business plan, people have decided to start celebrating The International Day of Awesomeness on March 10th.
Now, isn’t this just awesome?
What is even more awesome is that the team worked long hours to get the best possible result for this milestone.
Why is this project awesome?
I can tell you this. This project is not awesome because it will bring in huge amounts of money. It is awesome because of the people that are a part of it. As it says on the project website:
No one’s perfect, but everyone can be awesome.
Why do people want to be ordinary when they could be awesome for at least one day every year? My personal experience has shown that the more awesome things are the happier it makes me to be a part of them.
After starting this project I’ve felt physically more alive than ever before. Every morning, I wake up happy and full of energy.
This has made me accomplish more every day. Or at least that’s how it seems. I’ve taken on so much extra work through this project that there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.
Luckily much of this extra work has been about sharing my ideas with people. After a while each person can have their share of the responsibility and be trusted by the rest of the team.
So put time working for you, not against you
Or you will run out of it.
