Building work around your life
It definitely shouldn't be the other way around.
If you’re a company of one, your mind-set is to build your business around your life, not the other way around.
By Paul Jarvis in his book Company of One
I think most of you had the self-realization moment when you read this quote 🙂
This is true for at least 99.99 percent of people in the world of business.
They think and do nothing apart from the business, and they don't even have a life.
I've seen business owners who start business at 9 in the morning and shut down by 9 at night. (I'm talking about you, dad 😂)
I salute and feel sorry for people like this.
Their entire identity is tied to the business, and they know nothing apart from this, and they most certainly don't have a life outside of business.
I'm not an expert in giving parenting advice, but your kid probably needs you more than you think.
This is definitely a clear motto every time I start a company.
I make sure my entire life is not just surrounded by it.
I need to live a life outside of my business.
