Someone told me about a company doing exactly what I had in mind for a business idea for some time now.
Normally, I’d get frustrated and assume that the idea is no longer one I can or should pursue.
On the contrary, I instantly saw it as validation of the idea and am even more motivated to pursue executing on it.
I’m even trying to think of how we could be friends and achieve greater success by working together in some ways.
Now it’s a race for validated learning.
