Transitions can be tough.
Dr. Seuss reminds us not to “cry because it’s over, but to smile because it happened.”
We all know the common expressions but it doesn’t make the emotions of the moment any easier.
If you’re going to start and run a company, you’re likely going to stay around for the long term.
Not many others are.
That is not a bad thing.
What you need when you start is different from what you need as you grow and change. What people need and want out of life and their careers change as well.
This is part of the process.
It never gets easier. And it shouldn’t.
You’ve chosen to spend time together.
To chase a common purpose.
You’ve been through the war together
And it’s important to honour that time.
It took me a long time to get there. I’m glad I’m there now.
