3 Things You Realise When Building A New Business

There’s LOADS I could say about this, but here’s the one thing I’d say has changed for me in the last 2-3 years, despite me often having periods where I’m STILL as busy as you describe here:

I used to think my job was to plan the work and then what time’s left (if I did well!) would be for family/personal/relaxation/weekends. However, now I see it the other way around. Now, I see my job as about planning the downtime. Planning it in.

And then with what’s left? I squeeze in as much work as I can. Does that mean I sometimes miss deadlines? Yes. Does it mean I need to be ruthless? Certainly, yes – and that’s almost entirely the point. Are there times when even this advice doesn’t work? Hell, yes! But the point is that being an entrepreneur is still a job (and in my eyes the best kind). Yes, we need to be our own boss, but we also need to be our own employee too.
