Minimum viable product, enterprise solutions, acquisitions, pivots, mobile platforms – the Internet startup universe is one complex, dynamic cosmos. Yet, for all the sophisticated technology, business intricacies, industry terminology, and adult dealings, what’s easy to overlook is how much an entrepreneur’s success depends upon the ability to behave like a kid.
Life Without Roadblocks
Running a startup is hard work, real hard if it doesn’t feel like fun. Kids have so much fun (apart from it being their main objective) because they approach puzzles and challenges as opportunities. Solving problems is fun! This mindset lets kids view the unfamiliar with both curiosity and wonder. The future? Barely exists in youth. So kids have no trouble focusing on immediate tasks and simply doing things before they inhibit themselves with worry over results.
Whether they’re conscious of it or not, entrepreneurs often become involved in projects because they see a kid’s adventure where others see headache and the likelihood of failure. Have you been staring into the mirror for too long without seeing that little boy or girl that’s still inside?
