What Is Reasonable?

Last night I had the opportunity to have a business meeting in Columbus with a fantastic old friend.  He is a brilliant physician, and he and his partner are considering starting a new venture.  The challenge with the meeting was that it needed to be scheduled at 8pm an hour and a half from my home. 

Think that is reasonable?  Then maybe you can be an entrepreneur.  If not, maybe not.

If you want to create something from scratch, grow something or make something flourish, you will be required to repeatedly do what others say is “unreasonable.”  You will be required to work harder and longer.  You must do more.  You will be required to say “yes.”

The cool thing is, by saying yes to things others deem unreasonable, you get to have great experiences (we had a great time).  The opportunities for learning and adventure will be exceptional.  In all likelihood, you will have fun.

But one thing is for sure…

If you want unreasonable results, you need to take unreasonable action.
