In my case, the fact that I’m writing this post today should make the answer obvious
Then again, I don’t consider most of the things I do “work” and don’t have a “can’t wait to get this over with”-ish attitude. Sure, some of the things I do are more enjoyable than others and yes, there are occasionally tasks I find boring but for the most part, I’m fortunate enough to be able to say that I truly love what I do.
At the end of the day, being an entrepreneur and/or an investor has its perks as well as drawbacks.
Yes, drawbacks as well.
For example, lots of those who have regular jobs can basically “log out” after their day at the office is finished. I don’t have the luxury and one project or another is pretty much always on my mind.
Also, they get to take time off while I for one (as mentioned on the 1st of May) can’t even remember the last time I took a day off.
So make no mistake, there are drawbacks as well.
However, the fact that you get to do what you love and make your own schedule more than makes up for it in my opinion. Would it be nice not to work on weekends? To be honest, I don’t think so. At least not in my case because again, I don’t consider it “work” but rather doing what I was born to do. Doing what I love. Doing what I’m good at.
However, don’t make the mistake of thinking that I’m encouraging you guys to spend your entire day in front of the computer. Not at all!
In fact, it’s actually a bad idea, especially if you value your health.
Remember what I mentioned previously: the fact that you get to make your own schedule is a *huge* advantage. Nowadays, my sleep schedule is finally on the right track. I eat the right things, stay in shape and all in all, am using the freedom I have to improve my life.
Other people unfortunately waste it by spending all of their time behind a computer screen. Staring at a screen when working and staring at a screen for fun as well by watching funny videos or reading utterly useless articles. Bad idea!
Our freedom can be a blessing or a curse, it all depends on how ambitious we are and on whether or not we’re able/willing to put it to good use. So as an answer to this post’s question: yes, I work on weekends but that doesn’t mean I’m one of those workaholics with an unbalanced life. Quite the opposite, actually.
