How easy it is to kill your own hopeless child?
I hear it is not easy as a mother.
Still there are few courageous ones who have the courage to pull the trigger.
Bollywood told us it is possible. But that was drama.
Over to real world. The ruthless world of Startups.
You nurture a startup.
You invest best days of your life into it.
You invest whatever you have, into it.
You are so engrossed in it that you never realize your product is doomed.
You still try to build something out of it.
You still try to raise money.
From your inner core you somehow start to realize it's not going to work.
You watch that motivational video and believe that perseverance pays off.
But you still fail to recognize that your product is doomed.
You allow your product aka spoiled child to live a long life.
