Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Star Trek franchise. Posts of favourite Star Trek moments populated Facebook. What was your favourite Star Trek Quote? I like Spock’s farewell, Live long and prosper. It summarizes much of what we yearn for.
When Star Trek first appeared on television I doubt whether Gene Rodenberry had any idea of its staying power or long-term impact. The show made a mark when it was introduced and still exerts an influence today.
Your business will do the same. The first years are fraught with difficulties and questions. It’s not easy running a business. Learning how to wear different hats, chief of marketing, selling, business development, hr and so on, requires dedication. You never know which hat you will be wearing when you start the day.
But, given time, your influence will spread.
What you do matters. It matters today and it will matter tomorrow.
You might never get the accolades or fame, like the creator of Star Trek, but you will look back in a few years and smile at what you have accomplished.
Congratulations on your commitment! Know that your work is important and you are important.
