Read this post from StartupNorth, running a business is no picnic and starting on even less so. Whatever the market, whatever the business - it's a competition.
It's about outmanoeuvring, being smart, and being able to run fast! I like Donovan Bailey's quote the day before the race against Johnson in Toronto back in 1997, he was bragging about how he was going to leave him in the dust - it went like this - "what he[Johnson] is my butt getting smaller and smaller"
Yes you loose some, but to go back to my top 10 - I make sure I learn and move on, cause tomorrow is another race!
