Emotional Startup Waves

I read that being in a startup it’s like an emotional rollercoaster. I didn’t understand it at that time. I thought working at a startup was: long hours and maybe in the future, things were going to be better.

What I have learned from two weeks full time on my startup is that you experience waves. For me, it’s not like a rollercoaster. I feel like waves. Although the waves are smoother than a rollercoaster.

It’s really simple, sometimes you feel you’re going to change the world and be rich. And sometimes you think the whole thing it’s a big mistake and you’re going to fail big time.

The waves are gradual you hit a high point, then slowly start decreasing to a really low ugly place. And then the other way.

Although this might seem like a psychiatric disorder. I think I am starting to use it. It can affect you, but it can help you a lot.

I try to always keep going. No matter what. Just keep pushing. I think it’s a mental state. You aren’t much better (or worse) today than yesterday. You can have some breakthroughs or major milestones, but it doesn’t change that much.

Also, I try to do hard stuff on the good times and easy stuff on the low times. It’s not always possible, but sometimes you can manage it.

It’s not an easy ride, but it has been worthy.
