Sculptors, of marble and of startups.

Building a startup is like sculpting marble. You have a general idea of what you are making and more so, the feeling and impact that you want to convey. Slowly, you chip away at that vision. Day after day. It does not happen all at once.
Sometimes, you make an unexpected move, and you have to transform it into something different. The pursuit still holds true to the original purpose.
Once in a while, you chip enough times that you have to throw the whole marble block away. It is past recovery. It is okay. There are other marble blocks in the world. You can start again.
Disclosure: I have no idea how marble sculpting works. 😂
