Have I not written a blog since May 2020 covid-19 chaos??!
Where has the time gone and why did 2020 feel like the longest year in my lifetime thus far?
Well maybe because it was. We were slower in 2020, Covid-19 took its toll. We moved like little turtles just hatched, coming off the shores of the pacific racing in slow motion to the ocean trying to escape the seagulls hovering to pick up our vulnerable Startup bodies and crush our shells into tomorrow morning's poop. Okay, slightly dramatic..
When I was in the Corporate world, working in high pressured environment, transforming or recovering technology, I wished each year that I was more patient and kinder when deadlines neared. I have achieved it finally after 20 years and it took me getting out of corporate to build my own business to get it. Oh plus a global health pandemic - but Eureka! I cracked it and survived on the other side.
My team have delievered a bulk of fixes on our wonderful little Startup called CheeHoo and we are closer to being a bit more stable and faster. Although we still have some work to do to pick up speed! We are now getting ready for our next stage of growth, more effficiencies, improvements in our calendar and doing more of what we all need it life, helping us juggle it all better without having to manually do it all! We also have something else cooking! Something that actually helps you get the things off your list! But lets not talk about that just yet, we have work to do!
Building a Technology platform, a startup a business is always harder then you imagine, even though you imagine the worst already. At times you feel the imposter syndrome creep in as you think, should I keep doing this? Is it really going to help people, like I imagined it would, based on my own problems? Who knows, but at this stage, im obsessed with solving the problem of our digital busy lives and I do see some of you feel the same, with the new customers who still downloaded during 2020. This tells me we are all still looking for better tools to manage our day to day.
I want technology to serve us better. I do not care to ask Siri to play music or get me a pizza. I want a better way to reduce the noise, prioritise those I love and automate the mundane in life!
There is my answer, I still need to keep going. This is the typical rational I go through of fact finding when imposter syndome comes to visit.
Until we all have an effective and practical digital assistance that actually manages our life admin and also actually gives us back time, I cannot see it any other way!
Have you got an obsession you want to solve? Do you see something in life that just does not make sense and you feel you have the idea to fix it? If so, lets connect, let me know, sitting on it for years does not make it go away.
Thank you for taking this journey with me and your patience as we build a platform for the future. Technology that serves you and your daily juggle, to give you a better quality of life with those you love, your passions and goals!
Spend less time caught up in the clutter and more focusing on what is truly important.
