Keeping your Head in the Paper Disco
This paper disco animation video is fantastic. From a conceptual and craftsmanship perspective, this short gets an A+. Not only is it fun to watch, it’s awe-inspiring because the amount of time that went into its production is incredible.
Stop motion animation is a great example of how burgeoning entrepreneurs should look at their business in the long term. There are hundreds of images in the paper disco animation—thin slices that when put together, create amazing entertainment. The same goes for entrepreneurs. There are hundreds of decisions you have to make—all culminating in the success of your enterprise. The incredible labor that goes into a business plan, the investor presentation, hundreds upon hundreds of conversations and hours poured into your business actually means something.
In the middle of the chaos in the entrepreneur’s world, it’s important to monitor your progress and take notice of your incremental success. To see your tireless efforts are paying off can keep you grounded. The occasional pat on the back is worthwhile in a world where you’re constantly fighting to grow your business.
There are of course many ups and downs in the process, but if you take a moment to reflect, it can give you a piece of mind and illustrate your impact. It can help you survive the Dip. Adding one element at a time, eventually your company will grow into a full-on disco.
