Welcome to the human condition: we want everything to change; yet we still want to be able to carry the old baggage around with us.
 
i.e. We say we want to change everything from the ground up - except for all the old habits that dominate our lives completely.
 
St. Augustine had a prayer about this: “O Lord, make me chaste. Just not yet.”
 
Any leader in business is going to run into this with his or her people, from the beginning, every day, forever and ever. It isn’t ever going away.

It’s like the Higgs Field of humanity; it’s just there. 

What Every Entrepreneur Knows: The Struggle Is Real

buy
Being an entrepreneur is the hardest thing you can do. It's beyond tough. All that independence you crave comes with an overwhelming amount of responsibility.

On a bad day, it's paralyzing. The fear makes your stomach churn. And we don't talk about it enough, because it's embarrassing to be afraid, and because pretending to be tough is sometimes how we get there.

Ben Horowitz' blog brilliant book "The Hard Thing About Hard Things" captured the feeling so well, I had to draw this piece around it. It's a superb reminder of why you do what you do.

Because it matters. And because you're not alone.
