Pale blue dot - A super perspective for a startup person

As Voyager I prepares to leave the heliosphere, it gives us an opportunity to reflect back on what Carl Sagan said about the 'Pale Blue Dot'. As I am doing some fire fights with my Startup, can't help but get inspired by it.

"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."

I of-course created a 'Surfmark' to capture the entire context along with Ben Horowitz's article in TC about "The Struggle".

(Hey, I am human and as a normal member of species, everything I do has to have an element of self-promotion!)

Vivek, sweet, I shall link here from my stash of The Struggle:

The struggle is where greatness comes from.
