Life in a startup
If there is one good word to describe the mental status of any startup CEO it has to be "bipolar." One day your team makes exciting advances, develops an awesome new feature, or solves a challenging problem that was halting development. Then, the next you may suffer big setbacks, miss deadlines, or read a tech blog only to learn someone has brought to market a concept your team was already exploring.
A garage startup CEO jerks from excited to worried week after week. I feel bipolar, but my mentor tells me that is normal. Maybe every CEO feels like that... maybe it even helps keep you on your toes.
