You can't stand on two boats

There is an old proverb:

“One foot cannot stand on two boats”

Many of us start on a new business idea while we still have one foot in the “real job ship”, and start stepping into the new business lifeboat we are crafting.

And that’s ok. For awhile.

I did it for many, many years. But, at some point, I had to make a leap of faith that my new boat would float and that I had to commit.

Why? Because necessity is the mother of invention. Leaving a comfortable job forces you to make your new business work. You can no longer drag it out for years and years as a hobby funded by your day job.

There’s a reason Vikings burned their boats on the shore of a new land. It meant they had to commit. There was no turning back. So, at some point, you need to do the same. Commit and don’t look back.
