Seventy Two Hours

I briefly talked with a guy who quit his job to start his business with a friend. But then the friend pulled out a month later. And he kept going but I guess things didn’t go as planned. He’s a digital marketer. I thought it was admirable at the time, but as I lay in bed, I can’t help but think of him. He said he spent over 12 hours a day, 6 days a week on the business; and spent 1 day with his family. I can’t help but admire him. I’d like to cultivate that drive. That sort of passion is necessary. That giving up of comfort for a vision. That giving up of something. I’d like to give up one thing a day for my vision. The thought makes me feel a little apprehensive, but what’s there to lose?  There are plenty things that I’ve given up over the years, why not do a mid-to-end of month challenge. 

There truly are remarkable people in the world. And sometimes, a brief moment can influence and inspire someone profoundly.  It’s not his success that’s got the wheels turning in my head. It’s the 12 hours a day, 6 days a week.  It’s the way that he sounded: down, yet desirous of the expected end. He still believed in it. I don’t want to say I’m inspired. But he has given me something.  I can’t quite put it into words. But this brief encounter has given me something.
