The first week as a full-time entrepreneur is over .. That was quick. I think after one week in it’s a great time for a first review how it feels to be full responsible to build a successful company.
It feels great! What I love most is the feeling to have a purpose in my doing. To have set myself on a mission. To have set myself goals I want to smash. To make a tiny piece of this world a better place.
It also does feel a bit exhausting. My head simply doesn’t turn off. Whenever I had a “normal” job I could easily switch into weekend mode and just forget about my work stuff from Friday afternoon till Monday morning. Now, I am constantly thinking. I tried not to work on this first weekend as we had friends staying over. But nevertheless, I constantly thought about ways to be more efficient, to plan out my day, to further define my plans…
It’s a good thing tho. And I believe necessary. A slight obsession I guess is needed to make a startup successful. Passion for what you are doing definitely helps to keep motivated and avoid excuses and procrastination.
I mean, there is a fine line from promoting your business, building your brand and going everyones nerves 😉 I try to find this balance and also keep interest in other areas.
Are any new entrepreneurs reading this blog? How do you handle free” weekends? Would love to exchange best practices – please get in touch! 🙂
