As an entrepreneur, you should always keep your eye on the prize, and never stray from the original vision that inspired you to start your own company in the first place. Your vision should always be the key determining factor for every decision that is made. The goal that you have set for yourself is what you need to think about at all times; it should be the first thing you think about when you begin your work day, and the last thing you think about before you go to sleep. Progress should be measured through the question, “Have I moved a step closer to my goals after today?” If you stay focused and dream about how good it will be in the end, while you are suffering through the early stages of your startup, you will one day reach the “promised land”.
