I love the thinking behind a seven year horizon. It’s less than an arbitrary decade, but longer term than most. Compromise, and yet not.
In June, I was let go from LeadMD. They’re a tribe of fierce robots hell-bent on delivering results to customers. LeadMD was founded in 2009.
I started GBXM in 2009.
My friend Adnan runs CarThrottle.com. He started that in 2009 as well. (Gave me the ground floor opportunity in 2010, too, but I passed because GBXM.) He now has millions of subscribers and offices in London and New York.
GBXM never went anywhere.
More and more, I think the lesson learned is compromise has its place, but not when it comes to delivering value.
In any case, I’m in the process of rebooting GBXM. Again.
I don’t have a seven year plan. I don’t even have a three year plan.
It’s just the thing I feel like I need to do right now.
Where will I be in seven years? When GBXM turns 15?
I don’t know, but there’s only one way to find out.
