Seth Godin on uncertainty: starting before you see the end

The second group of you – and I can see it in your eyes – is saying: “Ah, it’s possible to build the perfect entrepreneurial project. [But] I can’t, because I don’t see it.”

You build the fundamental building blocks. You put them in place so that every day success leads to more success.

It will get you somewhere, but where you’re trying to go isn’t what you’re going to have the first day. It’s more about, “Did this interaction permit me to survive? Can I keep piling on these interactions one after another so that it becomes a virtuous cycle along the way?”
