The deep endPosted by William
Just quickly, have you ever tried to explain to someone the concept of Facebook? Sound like an easy task? Well my challenge to you is to visit anyone over the age of 70 and try to explain the concept. Reddit? Digg? Twitter? (the inspiration behind this short post after trying to explain the ‘Twitter’ concept… and failed)
I remember my first attempt to understand blogging. It took me an age to figure out what a Blog actually was. Was it a website? A type of small blob like widget? What’s a widget? No matter how many times someone tried to explain the ‘blog’ concept, it never really registered. That was until I downloaded Wordpress and set one up. It became clear and wasn’t as confusing as my head made it out to be. I swam.
Setting up a company is really difficult… until you actually do it. It’s simply a piece of paper stating that you are officially a big scary company. Not much more than that. I don’t feel so scary.
There are many things in life and in business which make very little sense until you take the plunge and jump in. I am a strong believer that if you don’t jump in the deep end, you’ll never really learn how to swim. Why? Because you will play it too safe. Force yourself to learn and you will.
