Oh, Timothy is a nice boss, isn’t it? You’re just sitting there, in your chair, thinking, how to tell them to speed up their work. Speed is a relative term. The measure is different for everyone and trying to get them to not only read but produce your measure won’t makes you shiver but if you think you had the skills to motivate them then let me say at one point you would find the level of your skill has dropped. Brother, everyone had felt that pain. I’ve been there and millions would probably have been there. I’ve heard of stories of people got fired by the same company they founded. I hope it won’t be same case as you but you created this friggin thing call nuffnang and you haven’t a clue how to motivate staff because you have never work a single day in your life (I mean a corporation) haven’t a clue about bringing people forward in a corporate environment. The hype and all would push your energy from the start and you had probably closed a few deals and any sort of success is success now and you are enjoying all publicity no doubt. But you can start folding your tent if success has only a single meaning.
I know, you feel like some hunk, whose name is pasted on some kind of hall of fame now which you think is all quite good for the future. Don’t feel so. You’re not the first one to feel it. Many had done it; many achieved more than nuffnang and still fail. Infact the niche of nuffnang is so small, it ain’t gonna be climbing tall mountains. The people in America, in China, in Europe, they haven’t a clue about nuffnang and probably can’t even if they try to have interest. No really. It’s true.
I mean, sure, you still got a nice little office, somewhere in some tall buildings with windows staring across some of the best skyscrapers.
Keep cranking out your ideas and maybe more business would come in. Or maybe not. Control as they say is able to turn every nose of the people working under you or above you without being sent away. Now there are many types of control to learn as there are many types of people in corporation. Every corporation has its own unique culture and some you would like and some you won’t. But culture isn’t something you can share just like that.
One has to be in there, survive, share, work and then learn. Sure you would not believe it was the best environment but you absorb and you will happily implement the cultures when you finally run a corporation, not all but some of it. Meanwhile you find that your partner is making plans to kill a part of your idea, frig you up too with some politics. Now you realized you are working with retards and viability of the business becomes a question mark. Someone is making noise about something which added another touch of much need or not needed complexity and confusion becomes greater and greater as the environment becomes murky. Some think about dumping the whole thing and all these happens under the eye of your critics, ready to come with the tag “Destined to Lose”. Oh dude, don’t tell me it would be anything but perfect because then you would be defying history, right? Yeah, me too. I walked the path you are walking so instead of shouting Google.com’s success, try to steal just 1% of their market share and that would soften the pain greatly.
I know, the next thing you want to say in your blog is you don’t care about money. All you are keen is to sit in your office and chew gums and run the business, and you don’t care about profits. So hey, things would not be what you expect but don’t try to impress to the point of forsaking your humility and implementing hypocrisy. But look. The good thing out of this thing would be someone might offer you a job later on in your life and you could move back to the starting point where you suppose to start albeit with a mind lesser naïve and I’m sure even then you could chew your gum whatever flavor you like. Just need to buy.
