What are your startup goals? How do you work to achieve them?

    Goal #1 is to choose something I'm really passionate about. Then create flexible action plan of sorts. The challenging part is working through the "stuck" stages. That's why choosing a passionate goal/result is super important for me. It carries me through the rough times!

    Thanks, @Stephen Jaymes

    I think passion makes sense, though a passion may not always be a profitable business idea. I agree that getting through obstacles is really important. Fighting through adversity is what makes a true entrepreneur.

    Agreed. But I would even go further and say that my goal #1 is to do something I'm really passionate about and earn money with it! Otherwise, I could see it as a hobby. And I guess, that's why so many people are founding startups in the first place.

    Adding on to being passionate, you have to enjoy the process of working towards your end goal. If you're only interested in your end goal, I don't see anyone lasting long at what they do.

    Thanks for sharing, @BrotherJ and @coleticon! You both make valid points about not only passion, but respecting the process of entrepreneurship.

    1. Mission: What is the enduring purpose of the venture?
    2. Long-term goal: What will this company look like in five years?
    3. Short-term goal: What frugal experiments must we make to reach our long-term goal?

    I only have one reason to wake up to everyday: "It's never too late to find your purpose"  and this helps me push the boundaries of what is possible to achieve what I thought can't be accomplished. The journey goes on...
