Just now when I was coming out of my washroom, I saw an ant moving on the sink. At first it did not look like an ant at all. I thought it is anyother comparatively bigger insect. But when I got closer, it was an ant holding a piece of food bigger then itself. I think we become what we carry.
We can carry anything, a camera, a hope, some anger, business idea, a flower, thoughts of revenge, a regret or anything out there. Some time you can even carry an idea which could connect 850 million people. In short, everyone of us is set to ship something.
I often whisper: “A lot gets changed, and it’ll be changed more by time.”
Lately I have been in lot of changes, mostly positives.
Now on this blog I want to talk about what I am doing, rather than what I or you should be trying becoming.
As some of you know, I am trying building a startup. A real business where I have to convince people to buy my product (mostly shoes). In fact I am learning how to make physical products from scratch. And how to ship when it is hard.
Now I am realising this more than ever that why someone like ‘Sheeda Dabay Wala’ (Sheeda box maker) is smarter than guys with an MBA from a leading business school.
Entrepreneurship is fun, but at the same time, probably the most sensitive fun one could ever have. For example, yesterday someone stole my motor bike from the parking. This bike was gifted by my brother to help me in my business. And now it is with me no more, but then no matter what, let’s keep shipping.
Let’s keep shipping for what we set overselves.
In coming days and months, I shall write how I am building the business and what is important which I am learning, relearning or unlearning.
My focus will be more on the business and workable side of the world rather than just preaching how to be a better human. Better human is important, but one can help more people if you have the idea of getting something physical out of that.
In short I am all set now. The site name is changed from ‘Waqas A Day’ in to Waqas Ali.
And yes, now we have a tagline/message: “Set for Shipping.”
