You see, recently I found myself stressed, tired and overworked. I took a step back and realised to my horror that I was working harder and longer then I’d ever worked in my jobs. I’d made the mistake of thinking that I had to put the long hours in before I could have a rest.
This is of course complete rubbish.
Now, if you are about to do a big product or site launch then maybe you will be working long hours but the point of having a web based business is to cut out the commuting and all the crap that goes with the rat race.
Work out how much you want to be making and then put in the bare minimum effort required to give you that lifestyle. I speak as a workaholic here. I emigrated and moved to the beach in Perth and what did I do? I ended up working like crazy again. Stupid – Stupid – Stupid.
Now I force myself to take days off. I don’t really work weekends and I have walks with my wife and long breakfasts on the marina. I love working on the web but I passed what I actually need to live in income wise a long time ago.
