The Gray Twilight That Knows Neither Victory Nor Defeat

Branson and MullenwegHere’s something cool. Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress was on Necker Island recently. In an interview that filmed him against a backdrop of luscious green mountain tops and azure blue waters, he admitted,

“It’s not necessarily the idea you started with that’s going to work, but if you keep working on it, new doors open up”

Businesses take a long time to gain traction and momentum. You’ll have spurts of growth, but quiet times can sometimes make up for them. The funny thing that you’ll find is that when your business actually does take off and take quantum leaps, you may not like it so much. Whereas once upon a time, it was about making people believe in your product, now it’s about sustaining trust, relationships, innovation and cash-flow to feed your people.

If you’re about to take off, I’ve recently uncovered some jewels that you might find a little bit awesome.

Basecamphq.com is a neat little gem for project management that I stumbled upon today. If you want to make life seriously easier and spend less time organizing and more time doing, hook up with a site like that.

Another amazing innovation is squarespace.com – it takes all the hard work out of building websites and gives you the freedom to be creative and feel good – absolutely everything is taken care of with a small monthly subscription fee. It also uses the award winning cloud computing system!

With technology and innovation like this, there’s alot of great things that you can achieve in business.

Alas, I conclude with this striking quote,

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat”

-Theodore Roosevelt
