The faster you run, the faster you wanna run!


And it is??exactly??when you have to make sure you control your speed and slow down.??Otherwise??you take the risk to become sloppy, make mistakes or even have an heart attack.

Tony Hsieh wrote in Deliverying Happiness that when preparing for a marathon you have to run slower than your real speed, that make you body stronger and train your endurance.

Endurance is key in entrepreneurship.

And this is exactly how I have been feeling for the past days. Entrepreneurs live for the rush, for the driving passion, but you have to make it last!

As entrepreneur, you can have some very low moment where you think nothing you do will change a thing, you see no future, no hope. But at other moment, you think everything is possible, you do 20 things at once and want to do more, keep having new ideas, new projects that you add on your to-do list.??

This month, having a improv show, organizing iWeekend, taking charge of my company monthly event, learning to program??? make me feel like I am running faster and faster. And it makes me happy.

I also notice I have more energy, I jumped everywhere, I go swimming. I feel like nothing can stop me!

But that is also when you have to be careful and be able to control yourself, you can not do and learn everything. Unless you sell your soul like Faust 🙂

Bu these moment are the reason why we choose the entrepreneur road. Like Cheezburger founder said it so well:

I'd rather be hammered down for a thousand years than never rise above.??
