For The Wanna-Be Entrepreneurs Amongst Us

My friend Ajit Jaokar writes a very personal post about a Pink Floyd music video–Learning to Fly from Momentary Lapse of Reason–that had a profound influence on his life.

The video of Learning to fly is deeply symbolic and metaphysical. It speaks of a young man leaving his secure existence and then ‘learning to fly’ at the risk of falling off a cliff.

I first heard that song when I was in a boring job in India and considered a job overseas – something which was a huge leap for me since I had never left India at that point.

Perhaps there is something in this symbolism for everyone ready to make a big leap in life.

Incidentally, I’m a Pink Floyd fan. The first recording I ever owned (decades ago back in Bulgaria) was a bootleg of the The Wall
