"I haven’t failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work."

Thomas Edison
"I haven’t failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work."
- Thomas Edison

It's already December, and it stuns me to see the time that has passed every since I became part of the Patisco.com family. The ups, the downs, and the bottoms, that we here all faced, went through, fought through, and seeing the break of dawn in the darkest of nights. It hasn't been a smooth journey, nor is it still smooth sailing... we face challenges and obstacles (which become challenges), overcome them, and once we do... it all begins again. But that is in essence, what we at Patisco.com do; we see problems, and we try to find the root of the problem, devise plans, and find a solution to overcome that problem. Believe me, we've had more than an Everest of great ideas, which would later be shot down like ducks on a hunting trip as we ourselves learn more and more, at the every changing world of business that we live in. Although so many of our ideas and plans have fallen through, or proven to be not working, it doesn't mean our spirits are down. As Edison said: "..I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." 
I've heard so many people say that what we do won't work, and some of the ideas in fact didn't work... but it has only made our resolve ever stronger as we learn from one more experience. 

May it be a certain function, or a business plan; we haven't given up after all this time, and highly doubt we will throw in the towel anytime soon. Indeed there are doubts, indeed there are risks, and yes there are livelihoods on the line, but that's what makes this worth the fight. Waking up in the morning and saying: get the f*ck up and get ready for this day. By the day's end, I always look in the mirror saying: it's been a good battle today, rest up and get out there again! But then again, that's just me. I know I am still young and full of fighting spirit, at the same time, I believe we have preserved that mentality and spirit no matter what age, gender, race, or religious belief you have at Patisco.com's team and family.
We all came from different walks of life, and yet we all sit, talk, work, eat, and chill together. We solve problems, overcome obstacles, and create new and revolutionary ideas and projects together. That is what makes us who we are, and why we will reach the top. It's not because of the money or because of the prestige, it's because we here at Patisco.com fundamentally believe in our mission and vision of a better tomorrow. Some say even if we succeed, what we change is something small and probably unknown to the world, and I say: it's the smallest changes that have the greatest impact not only on us as a society, but have an effect on history.
We don't take pride in the victory, we take pride in the struggle; the fight for what we think needs to be achieved in order to make the changes we want to see. As we at Patisco.com always say:
"Never stand still."
