New series: "Startup Therapy"
Startup Therapy series
As write more on this blog, I have come to the realization I thoroughly enjoy coming up with themes to coalesce my writing around.
Themes create a certain mass for my activities, reflections, and thoughts to gather around. As a result, things collect in a way they would not without the theme being present. Themes help me write.
Only because of the theme “Stories From My PhD” did I start rummaging through my email archives, saved documents, pictures, and memories. The stories are not the cause of the rummaging, they are a result of the rummaging. That series will keep going, as I have quite some stories still in the works (even though not all of them will see the light of day).
I am going to start rummaging in my experiences for a new series of blog posts: the “Startup Therapy” series.
In this theme, I will explore lessons from my experiences since founding Liberate Science in 2019. Sometimes I may reflect on how running a startup has helped me work through personal problems — the startup being a form of therapy. Another is how therapy helped me in running a business. Moreover, in this series I am also happy to take questions from people thinking about running their own project, in which the startup therapy is for you!
I sort of already started the “Startup Therapy” series before, but quietly. I am committing now as I am starting to notice some lessons are becoming ingrained and obvious - writing them down can help remember it wasn’t always that obvious.
