We engage in life, business, marriage and other infinite endeavors. You participate and you do your best. If you see the journey as a finite game, after a seeming victory - there is the next battle, and the next. We should rather see our challenges as hurdles to overcome, as inherent parts of our journeys; as ways to build knowledge and mastery. As parts of the journey towards our just cause. We can't see the end of the journey, there is no clear outcome and there are no defined rules to guide us as to what it means to win.
How much do you act as a startup in your enterprise? She fell in love with the idea of a great coffee experience - Starbucks - when she was over in the US. Why as a customer do I need to solve my own problems, the non-existent Starbucks in the UK? You need to identify the gap in the market, and exploit it.

What are my customers literally paying for? If they are paying for anything else than the outcome, you have waste. Waste means opportunities, for you, or someone else. New question for the 3rd customer data wave: How can we measure outcomes to increase efficiencies in the markets with a better outcome/asset for us and customers?
My conclusion is that reMarkable team delivers on their promise, to create a true paper tablet. The device delivers better paper and has replaced my Leuchtturm journal. I use more digital paper than I ever used offline paper, I no longer refrain from getting a "dead" copy as a PDF to draw, doodle and ponder upon. It is a reMarkable device, yet with some quirks to overcome, which are all entirely possible with future software updates, which have been promised to come "soon".
I have finally received my reMarkable after waiting since summer, and used it for about a week now. I have used up about half of my first nib, need to charge the paper tablet daily and it has completely replaced my Leuchtturm and Lamy for keeping my daily journal.
