Building A StartUp

How much did they pay you to give up on your dreams?— a memorable line by Ryan Bingham (played by George Clooney) in the movie “Up in the Air”.

That line brings to the surface what its like to get caught up in life. Sometimes getting caught up in life is good. Having a family, children, or taking care of a loved one. Those are all valid reasons to put to the side your wants or more specifically your dreams. No one will ever fault you for prioritizing any one the above mentioned reasons. But here’s the thing…

Is that really the reason you have not pursued your dreams?

Before you answer that and before you continue reading, this is not for everyone. This is for those who think life can be better, who think life is what you make it, and finally for those who think that making the best of your short time on this planet is the only thing that really matters. That may not be you.

There is 24 hours in a day, 168 hours in a week, and roughly 720 hours in a month. That is a lot of time and even with a family, a full time job, and decent sleep, there is still a huge chunk of time that remains.

Now you can answer.

Im guessing that your answer is probably no.
