The Other Side Story

Praveen, the owner of a coffee shop had been busy all day. Being a weekend, his shop was very crowded and the customers seemed unending.

He had been on his toes since morning. Towards the evening he felt a splitting headache surfacing.

As the clock ticked away, his headache worsened.

Unable to bear it, he stepped out of the shop leaving his staff to look after the sales.

He walked across the street to the Drug store to buy himself a painkiller to relieve his headache.

He swallowed the pill and felt relieved. He knew that in a few minutes he would feel better.

As he strolled out of the shop, he casually asked the salesgirl, “Where is Mr. Dinesh, the Pharmacists? He’s not at the cash counter today!”

The girl replied, “Sir, Mr. Dinesh had a splitting headache and said he was going across to your coffee shop. He said a cup of hot coffee would relieve him of his headache.”

The man’s mouth went dry and he mumbled, “Oh! I see.”

This is a typical case of looking outside ourselves for something that we have within us.

How strange, but true!

The Pharmacists relieves his headache by drinking coffee and the coffee shop owner finds relief in a pain relieving pill!

Similarly, many of us travel across the lengths and breadths of the universe and also visit several places to find peace.

PEACE & PROBLEM are really just a state of mind.

Eventually, we come to realize that real peace is within our own hearts and Problem we face is just a state of position at times.

Profit and Market share alone does not qualify and quantify them for the standard that they possess from an eminent institute that they belong to, we may see many of such Entrepreneurs who have come up as business giants with Simple education or nearly insignificant qualification largely.

Do this alone justify the means? (You may have your perspective on this.)

To become an entrepreneur you need not be a graduate from a top institute. If you think so, I may also request you to think of graduate scholars from prime institute each year vis-a-vis Entrepreneur they become who are efficient in Growth journey, Sustainability, and their contribution to the society.

Let us see a few things that make that makes an entrepreneurial journey complete.

Zeal: Entrepreneur if you want to be, you need to start looking out for Problems around you and think of what you can do for it. You need to have the Zeal to undergo learning and gain insights with an open mind.

Brainstorming: Connect with the Field Experts, Peers, or thought leaders who can share ideas and experience for more Idea generation that can help you with solving a real-world problem, give back to the Society and yet generate money.

Problem Identification: Once you have done with your brainstorming, chart-down out fine problem that can lead to a specific Process design that helps you in Fund generation, Market Viability (for the Product or Service), Sustainability, Executable Action Plan and Scalability in the future.

Be S.M.A.R.T: Make your business idea a SOLUTION (Product or Service) that can a MEANINGFUL contribution to the user that is ADVANTAGEOUS and can help the user with RE-ACTIONABLE support that bring in utility for long sustainable TIMELESS duration of scalability.
