Today I reached the point in my coffee education where I felt ready to begin developing the first iteration of my business plan.
The problem is that I have endless ideas, some of which I have formally developed in a binder, and am only now starting to figure out how to transcribe and articulate those ideas in the form of a business plan. Much easier said than done..
I once read about a clock-maker, or 'timepiece' maker, who was renowned for his artistic brilliance and ability. When asked why he did not take up sculpting or some other art form that would allow him a greater degree of flexibility to be creative, he stated that a blank canvas was too intimidating. The point is that people like to have boundaries and limitations, because then we have waypoints and a bit of guidance from which to then create our masterpieces.
I want to type this business plan until my fingers fall off, but the trouble is getting started. The blank canvas still feels a bit intimidating..
