Building a business : The Library On Cart case study : Chapter 9 The Cart arrives

My mother in law doesn’t like it one bit πŸ™
It disturbs our relationship. Our peace. What to do? If it’s my house I have the right to do what I want. If it’s her house she has the right to do what she wants. Whose house is it?
Deepu also hates it. In their opinion it’s down market πŸ™
Dolly is at school.
Prasoon. Prasoon πŸ™‚ He’s most worried about the security of the cart πŸ™‚ He rushes to buy the strongest chain and lock he can find :0

I’ve a problem on my hand. Strained relationships.
Now what? Do I stake the house peace or my trust? What’s more important? Relationship with in laws or trust of Ritu and Anubhav ? Who should be a priority? Is there a way to balance both ? How? Why bother balancing both? Why not quit? I’ve the excuse. We haven’t spent much money or time. Ritu and Anubhav think it’ll be easy, I know, KNOW, it’s going to be hell. Why go to hell? Is it so important? We’re doing well with Wrapd…..

I don’t use the excuse.
I’m in it for the long haul.
Committed.
The team will either deliver or die trying.
The second requirement of building a sustainable successful business.

I try to balance both. We bypass the ground floor totally. No parking in the courtyard. No going in and out of the house. No using the backstairs. Just bypass. No discussion too, how to do it. Just keep quiet, figure a way out, implement, maintain peace πŸ™‚ Don’t want stress. Don’t want to devote mind space to such inconsequential things. Hey there are better things to do in life πŸ™‚ like going to the thela :))

Now we have
Blind faith
Commitment
Willingness to innovate. There’ll be problems galore. You’ll have to innovate your way out.
