As entrepreneurs, one of the things that drive us crazy is numbers. Right after you have had an idea, everything that follows is attached to some number/statistic.
Entrepreneurs are visionaries; we see and pursue things that other people cannot yet see. We are disrupters of the market and status quo; we find ways to do common things differently. And as a result, we struggle daily with the thought that, “Nobody understands me.” It is true, nobody gets us. We are a special breed.
This is a very common battle entrepreneurs face. A siege against your vision; your dreams are being besieged. You are doing so much; you have given up everything, you have given up your friendships, your time with family, your energy, your money, but nothing seems to happen.
Most crises in history have overlapping similarities (e.g. economic recessions, lay offs), but each also comes with unique new normals, new needs, new ways to serve, and new ways to matter.
God has clicked the “pause” button for the entire globe. For billions of people, that ever-speeding, ever-noisy, ever-stressful thing called life has suddenly taken a break. It is as if the Creator looked upon His creation, a world driving itself increasingly insane, and announced, “Be still, and know that I am God (Psalm 16:10)”.
