Well it had to happen eventually. We are getting busy, so busy I forgot to write this blog. To talk a little business, we have secured our first contracts and are working on developing them. It is an exciting time and time is short. I have Friday’s off as you know, but it is getting to the point where I need to work some hours so I can finish. Decisions, decisions, decision….
If you think about it, I have said that the four-day work week is what I want for me and whoever works with us. Our goal is that in five years we work 180 days and rest 180 days. When things get busy, you start trying to figure out how the heck do I do this without failing our Principals and actually working on Fridays?
Well, very honestly I think I will tell you. For one, my week has to be more productive. Less time has to be spent in things that are not productive or in things that someone else could do. Second, I need to make sure things continue to be well-organized and defined as they have been in the last 7 weeks since I started the company. It has been very well-disciplined but now it needs to be extremely well-disciplined, that way time is sufficient. My afternoons have been a bit long. I was usually out by 4:30pm, now I am out at 6:30pm. Not really a big deal, as I am still able to walk my little one to school and have a good breakfast at home with my family. I do not go out to lunch, as I pack one and eat in a rest area in my office building. And, third and last, I have to make sure that my day is fun. If it is fun 8-10 hours goes by quickly, if it is not, then it is 8-10 hours.
So far it has been a blast and I am happy to tell you that I am making progress. No life lesson today, just a simple business update for those who know me. I will probably get you another one like this in about 7 weeks, and then we will see if we really are getting busy….
Stay calm and keep humble!
