It means nothing absolutely nothing really, the only thing the result of this election is good for – is to distract you, everything else you want to say to me in defense of your reaction is bullshit.
If you want to go off on a Facebook rant or show a picture of an empty Jack Daniels bottle next to an application for Canadian Citizenship on Instagram, fine, but that’s it. Leave it there. Anything more is procrastination with a reason.
If you want to get with friends and chat about it, on the phone, via text, messenger, video chat whatever you are now have entered the land of the Bullshit Entrepreneur – How’s the weather? Warm, comfortable?
Bullshit entrepreneurs look for any excuse to not hustle, and this my friend is an excellent excuse, excellent!! But it’s still an excuse.
There is nothing and there is no one but your goals and objectives matched to action, everything outside of that is a distraction and will take you away from your goal, to have your startup started, tested, running and kicking ass!
If you are emotional about this result, good. Take that emotion and let it be fuel to the fire of your desire to build that business, write that book, or design the app. You personally, are not defeated, you are a ninja, a pirate, a startup superstar, and startup superstars don’t gossip all day about how they are moving out of country. Startup Superstars throw down that energy into the brawl that is business building.
Here’s a truth: If you fail tomorrow who will pick up the broken pieces Donald? Hillary? They don’t know who you are and they don’t care, no one cares about you and your thing. You have got to care so much that the election, the J train, the weather, the sports score, all of it is nothing but noise, and you must move forward! Take that next step, move forward, write that code, move forward, build the next piece to your puzzle and MOVE FORWARD!
Now let’s kill it.
