Weekly insights from an Entreprenuer: To spend one year as a tiger is better than to live forever as sheep

What’s harder than launching a startup?

Losing weight.

For those of you that have been following this blog, you know that I’ve been trying to lose some weight and get back in shape. Not going all crazy like those guys in Biggest Loser. (which for whatever reason always comes on when I turn on the TV. Must be a sign. Great show btw) Just trying to keep consistent with running and lifting daily and eating more healthy foods – veggies, fruits, and such.

It’s hard. So, of course, in the first few weeks of my commitment, I turned to what I knew best – Web 2.0. And guess what? There’s nothing there. Here’s a few sites that I tested and left unsatisfied within a couple days:

And here’s a great blog about other ones. Someone PLEASE write better software for this. There’s a massive market and it helps people. If no one does by the time my first startup gets off the ground… I might just have to tackle it myself.

If I can put my mind to quitting a great job to try to get a risky startup off the ground, I can put my mind to shredding a few pounds. This is going to be an exciting year of big changes. WIsh me luck. I’ll need it.

I can be a Loser too.

PS: (What prompted me to write a post about this was seeing a good friend at dinner yesterday who’s getting good results from his diet/exercise plan. It’s hard. Very hard, but you’re looking good JT, keep it up.)
