You make a number of great points — in all cases it really is about the journey. I think I should have been clearer though — in the case of Olympics, the journey at least does come to a measured ending as there are final results and people can judge whether they won a medal, did their best, wish they had done better, etc. At least there is a final measuring stick at which point you wrap up one journey and perhaps start the next. In the startup world, there isn’t nearly such a clear measuring point — the journey can be endless!
