My office is located in a small apartment on the top floor. It gets unbearably hot in the day. I have an AC in my room that I keep switched off most of the times (except when I feel I’m going to faint from the heat). I’m not trying to save electricity but I don't use it because the rest of my team is sitting under the fan right outside. Even if I use it for a few minutes, I keep the door open. I just think it’s not fair to be “comfortable” when my team is not. Can’t buy an AC for the outer room just yet. I told my team that, I would get the cooler from my home for them. They couldn’t see why. I was told that the fan is good enough and that there’s no need for the cooler. One guy in particular remarked, “Its not that hot here.” I heard him and looked down to see - I wasn’t wearing any footwear - it’s what I do when I’m feeling too hot in the office and haven’t switched on the AC. I walk around bare feet. We are a startup and we are all struggling in some way or the other. Whether it be the heat, the limited budgets, the extra effort and work, or the challenges ... we are all in it together. And we are all doing our best to stay optimistic, confident and cool. Three cheers to that, wouldn’t you say?

As a community member, you got to give out value for others. If you are giving and giving, eventually you will get some value in return too.
Here's what happened. I made a youtube video around my workflow for keeping a track of passwords of dozens of accounts. In that video, one of the viewers commented about KeePass XC software. I explored that out and it was just brilliant. Thousand times better than my Excel workflow and I immediately adopted Keepass XC for storing passwords for myself.
Therefore, keep on creating values and 1000x return will be waiting for it, just don't do things out of an expectation.
The world is now full of abundance. Abundance of information, knowledge, opportunities and ideas. With an entrepreneurial mindset and good amount of influx of information from social media and the internet, one can come up with numerous business ideas out of the problems which one can identify.
Same is the case with me and at times I struggle to action -- as they say one who chases 10 rabbits, catches none.
It's a must to be a niche-focused in the beginning and do things really well end to end to close one idea, one goal, one opportunity fully. Perhaps the initial goals should be small enough to work up really quick to have the satisfaction of completing something.
I hope to follow that regime but it takes humungous amounts of willpower to just stick to one.
