When I started writing this bIog I was standing figuratively speaking on the crossroads of a very big decision that I needed to take that could have massive direct and indirect short term and long term consequences not only for individuals but also for the fate of the company I officially started with the (market) research and conceptualization of it somewhere in the beginning of 2015 and the official bootstrapped pre-revenue/pre-seed founding round in november 2017.
I am finishing the text today for what I wanted to say then, and here is the thing though, something that I really dislike the most about the work I need to do to build a new company, much of “our internal” struggles I cannot just disclose just like that in a blog, Tweet, Okuna post, Entnest say, LinkedIn article, etc, as things are going on because it can drastically influence the outcome of what at that moment needs resolving. When I started the blog then it was almost midnight and there wasn’t any chance I was going to sleep early that day seeing that at midnight the big decision was being concluded. And with decisions like this, when I started writing this blog I don’t have anyone that I can call to talk about this (personal/business(sensitive problem) now. Don’t understand me incorrectly here, if I’m “in deep shit” there is always someone I could call anytime of the day/night to ask for help, so don’t worry that this is something like that! With this problem I could also discuss this with the advisors that are helping me start the company, but at the time I was writing the blog for the first time they were either asleep or they were not asleep but the subject matter is not their area of expertise.
This last paragraph I started writing too, together with what I later on LinkedIn in a post called the Life-Formula©. I was writing this draft of the blog with the intention of saving it for a later date as I was personally expecting another outcome of what happened at midnight. So I started writing this blog as a draft and this following list I wasn’t then sure if I would add everything when publicized because the subject matters I wanted to leave for another blog. So I’m just going to mention now and if someone wants me to write a blog (faster) about a particular subject matter leave a comment under the blog. In any case, for me doing yoga, stretches and exercises helps, using pure cannabis (it’s “legally tolerated” to cultivate your own plants here in the Netherlands, but I live in the same house with my mom and she doesn’t want a plant in her garden, so her house her rules as long as they don’t interfere in my own personal life), “writing it out”, doing the dishes, cooking, taking cold showers and gardening are all things that helps me to put things in perspective when dealing with problems like I was going through when I started writing this blog for the first time.
Here is the challenge I am facing now for finishing the blog. When I started writing this I wasn’t planning on publishing this blog or the “Life-Formula©) in a LinkedIn post. Circumstances made things differently. The personal reason I started writing this blog with this then still unnamed formula as the subject in mind, was because with the particular person I was having business problems with, I experienced something with somebody in a way that I never experienced in my life since having started using the 5P-Formula©. This particular experience made me realize that I need to go tweak the “patience part” in the molecule. Because in this instance, my respect and love for the Tiiendemanns Group coupled with my perseverance to see the start of the 1001 Year Plan materialize is something that coupled with only the “patience part as is” kept me from taking the decision to come with a clear parting point (much) sooner that shows if there is commitment from both sides to see if we can work together or not, even though we both believe in the projects and want to see them succeed. There is also the legal reason that made me come up with what is now called the “Life-Formula©, because if I needed to go defend the 5P-Formula© in a courtroom I wanted to at least have something to show the judge what I believe the base of what the 5P-Formula© and the Peace and Prosperity-Equation© is formed on. Because eventually the 5P-Formula© is created to make the Peace and Prosperity-Equation© more “graspable” and ultimately both formulas say something about “life” and the life I believe we all need to be pursuing to reach our true collective potential to make this planet a much better place to live on for everyone; people, flora and fauna. Only that, what then “life” is or means to me, that I couldn’t put in words, until now.
What I mean with “tweak” the “patience part” in the molecule is that “patience” like “perseverance” is not defined in what all constitutes having optimal “patience”. With “perseverance” (in business or (personal) life) you need a balance in “passion” and “ponderance”. Without passion and ponderance there is no perseverance (-1 + 1 = 0). So “patience” in theory could also be defined in what all constitutes having optimal “patience”. Only that, this particular piece of the molecule is what I learned is still definitely needed to be included in the molecule for it to be (more/fully?) complete. What this means for the 5P-Formula© as is, is that by adhering to the “patience part” too strictly one can actually start deviating from ones own pathway through prolongation of an unnecessary and internally negative flow of process, but that the closed safety mechanisms of the principles do create that adherence to the principles cannot cause (full) breakage with ones own pathway.
What I also experienced firsthand now is that “modern sales techniques” is not only actually (already then) outdated (because they do not fit in an open and transparant global society), but most importantly and personally for me, those communications with people is not part of the culture I envision(ed) for our company. In the hiring process for all new team members this will be a main focus point, because from a business standpunt creating injustice for itself creates the absolute (future) costs of retribution for the negative energy being taken from the whole. To explain this simply: chemical factory treats it workers terribly and doesn’t give them safety clothing just to save money. Long term this inevitably will lead to “science/medicine” discovering the “ground zero” for particular commonalities in deceases from (ex) workers that gives a judge proof to condemn the company with hefty fines (or closure of the factory). This is not even taking the psychological effect that knowingly doing this to others has on a person that will also later on in life lead to a halt of that energy theft that could have gone into creating something positive.
So if you ask me, what is life? I would have need to give you this formula that I now call “Life-Formula©”;
Truth = Time
Justice = Truth
Time = God
If you ask me what does this have to do with you personally and/or how do you stand in all of this? Then I also came up with the “You & Life-Formula©”;
Time = Life
Life = You
God = Time
