I’ve recently started working on a side project, which will hopefully soon become a company. Although I’ve been only working on this project for two weeks, I can just tell that starting my own thing has been one of my best decisions so far. These past two weeks have been so intense, and most days I catch myself losing track of time. That is not to say that it has been easy. It hasn’t been. It’s actually been quite hard. Nevertheless, I feel I am enjoying every single minute of it (the good and the bad), and I had never felt that before at any of my previous internships.
It sounds weird but I always felt that something was missing. I knew that I was only putting in 15-20%. I just couldn’t get myself motivated. It’s hard for me to articulate why this was the case but for now I am happy that it’s no longer the case. I find myself waking up early and staying up late working on this project with my best friend and although we’re playing to win we’re enjoying every day as it was the last one.
I will keep writing on how things go but for now I am happy because I know that I am working on the right thing.
