Interstellar : An elixir for Entrepreneurs

2016 Siddharth Behera

Well! I hope all of you have watched the movie ‘Interstellar’ by Christopher Nolan. It was a science fiction, right?? You all must be wandering how a science fiction can be correlated with entrepreneurship. In this article you will find some of the famous quotes of the movie which I bet will be damn good for people who wish to know about entrepreneurship and how to excel this layout. So let’s proceed.

(i)Dream Big:-
As Cooper states “We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers , to reach the stars and to make the unknown known”
Thus a good start up always requires perseverance and passion to keep the business strategy moving.

(ii)Love what you Do :-
In the movie, Dr Brand confesses Cooper that “Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of the day . Rage, Rage against the dying of light”
These words signify the importance of going ahead and raging to complete your daily good.

(iii)Own your Choices:- While case and Cooper were maneuvering the Endurance , they needed to match the spinning of their spacecraft with the retro-thrusters of Intl. space station .That moment Case replied to Cooper “ It’s not possible” however Cooper was confident and told “No, it’s necessary”. Therefore ,we should know that it is within ourselves to recognise our problems and how to tackle them.

(iv)Preparing for your startup
Preparation of an effective business plan is the greatest need in this area. But remember, you have to be executing your plans on a small scale on a regular basis as well. Rather than hoping for the “perfect method”, start something new.
As Dr Brand speaks “Maybe we’ve spent too long trying to figure out this theory” and therefore they realize that the Plan A of Endurance was a complete flop.

(v)Learn to ride roller-coaster of unexpected moments
Each and every entrepreneur has to face some setbacks and these moments can completely derail our progress. As Cooper quotes to Case “Murphy’s law doesn’t mean that something bad will happen , it means whatever can happen , will happen” . Use your positive sight in these ugly headed situations to move to a positive end result.

(vi)Be courageous, support your guts
“I have an itch, heading back to the base” :Cooper Be brave by following your insights . If it is hard to evaluate, then just scratch the itch and go ahead, because your choices are off the mark. But still, you may double check practically to see if you are in the correct path.

(vii)If successful, then what’s next
“Or perhaps we have just forgotten that we are still pioneers
And we have barely begun
And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us,
Because our destiny lies above us.”

Personally I was spellbound by these inspiring quote probably the reason itself why Nolan made the movie. This quote needs no explanation. Just go ahead!! And rage for your goals
What does travelling through space and time do with enterpreneurship . So, I think now you can answer this question. The reason why we blast off a rocket to know the unknown signifies regarding starting a new business with your own innovation . Again, you have to brand your work ( Like gravity equation which was finally solved by Murph) and you have to cross the blackholes (depressions and emotional stress) . I hope you liked the article and shall blast off now to become an entrepreneur.
