The Tremendous Twos! Happy Birthday Nebulaworks!

Happy Birthday

Hard to believe that another year has flown by.  This month marks Nebulaworks’ 2nd Birthday!

What a two-year-old we’ve become.  I’m asked all the time what it is like to take an idea, turn it into actionable items, and execute.  In the first year, the response was pretty canned – a lot of hard work!  But as we moved into the second year my answer started to change a bit – and now I think I have come up with a good analogy.

For the parents out there, you’ve been through the period called the “terrible twos” with your kids.  Hold up!  Terrible?  I take a completely different view.  Back when my kids were two, in a preemptive strike my wife and I did some research to educate us on how to “survive” this period.  What we learned led me to call this time the “tremendous twos.”  I still look back on it and love that age and I never did agree with the negativity stemming from this developmental period.  Jay L. Hoecker, M.D. from the Mayo Clinic provides a brilliant summary of what we learned:

“While the terrible twos can be difficult for parents and caregivers to navigate, keep in mind that 2-year-olds are undergoing major motor, intellectual, social and emotional changes. Their vocabularies are growing, they’re eager to do things on their own, and they’re beginning to discover that they’re expected to follow certain rules.”

Right?  Year two is a very transformative time for a child.  Coming into their own, having a new view on the world and how they relate but not having the communication skills to explain their feelings.  Interesting.  Sounds quite a bit like a company at the two year mark.  How, might you ask?
