Nobody starts a business during a pandemic!

I can't hire someone during a pandemic!

Nobody will answer the phone in a pandemic!

Who would buy that during a pandemic?

I can't possibly invest during a pandemic!

Ree ree ree pandemic!

Just because there are new obstacles, doesn't mean you stop everything.

"Okay ready to start!"
"Oh but what if I get sued?"
"What if I get a bad review?"
"What if I can't keep up with demand?"
"What if someone copies my product?"
"What if...?"
"What if...?"
I'd better go write contingency plans for every possible outcome, then I'll be ready to start!

'Let me register 3 domain names for this idea I just came up with while taking a shit!! I might need them once I get working on it! Make sure you get the international domain extensions as well in case you want to expand in the future. Better safe than sorry!!'

I have about 25 of them....

22 year old me 100% thought this. I was right. Life is so much simpler with a 9-5, a wife, a 6 week old son, a body that's further and further on the wrong side of 30, using my free time to chase side-business customers that aren't paying, and working on self- improvement shit that I didn't have the wherewithal to start at 18.

It would have been so much harder to start a business when my day consisted of skipping class, studying for 5 minutes, playing computer games, and trying to hook up with the girl with the nose ring down the hall. So, so much harder.
I have to tattoo this on my body as a reminder.

Making a progress thread and updating it weekly for a whole year, writing down how much time has been spent doing college assignments vs playing videogames or idling on Facebook, and adding them up at the end of the week...

Billy Bob has a turn-key mlm I can do to generate some money while I'm thinking and it will help me fund my startup. I don't have time to start a business and figure out the processes. I just need a starter pack. What if it really takes off then? I won't have time or need for the start up.

My office is a mess. I can't start in all this clutter. I have to go through all of the stacks of papers to make sure I don't get rid of anything important. First I have to pull it all out from under my desk. I didn't want people to get the wrong impression of me on my video call.
