Taking A Day Off: Out Of The Office, Into The Car
I decided I needed a day off (from everything but posting here, of course), and it resulted in me doing some light work anyway. It is a disease. That itch to do just one more little task is like a rash that spreads until you are a workaholic without any sanity left to spare. Are you guilty too?
As a matter of fact, a small site called Score notes some statistics they found around the web on this very topic. How about the fact 39% of business owners put in 60-hour weeks? Could it also be the 40% of owners who are trying to avoid burnout? Where do you sit?
I'm riding high on the long week, a potential burnout train.
That is why I was taking today off. I was going to crochet, do some chores around the house, make a nice meal, and just be grateful for flexibility.
Then I opened my email.
Maybe you have no clue what I am talking about. You don't take a day off.
If that is the case, you probably sit within the 4% who see no hurdles in entrepreneurship. I applaud you for that. You are so in control of your mental health and time management, you just live for the work and work to live. That 4% of you will probably do things I could not imagine.
The other 96% of you reading this, take my advice. Go enjoy a day off and remember that the only person cracking the whip is you!
