When I decided to write a daily post on Linkedin from 1st Jan 2019 it was ambitious to say the least. Audacious was more like it. My history of writing regularly, if one had to take that into account as proof of intent or probability of success, should have been a dampener. However looking back at the last 499 days it proves that nothing is permanent. Your past is not necessarily an indicator of the future. You can do what you want, if you are committed 100%.
This is nothing new. And there are variations of this that we all read over the years. It is hard to say No – to friends demanding time, to that extra bit of work you think you should finish before going to bed, to watching that movie that you really are not liking, , eating that muffin that you thought you would like but – well – not that much. You get the drift. And then there are bigger ones – No to refined sugar, No to binge watching TV (and eating junk food while at it) No to a boss who insists you need to work late to prove you are with it.
Being an entrepreneur is about taking decisions. All the time. It wears you off specially if you are trying to optimize every single one. Every decision has to be the best decision. Fine tuned. To the T. It can be exhausting if not paralyzing. When is good enough good enough? Most of the time it appears.
