Building a new venture is like rock climbing. Three lessons we learn from rock climbing:
1. You have to be physically ready to climb.
Preparing a plan and setting your goal is one way to make yourself ready physically and mentally.
2. You have to choose a good rope.
Your rope is lifeline. Never underestimate your budget to find a good gear when you climb the rock.
3. You have to know when to climb.
Going against horrible weather condition is such a bad idea. Never make your stamina burn too fast with imminent threat.
