When you don’t have to answer to a boss (since you *are* the boss), you basically have complete freedom. I’m a very ambitious guy and this is a double edged sword in my case, since I tend to sometimes forget that I’m only human.
That’s a huge mistake and a surefire way to burn yourself out. If you put your body through more than it can handle, I assure you there will be a price to pay. If not today, then maybe tomorrow… with interest
Everything ends up costing you in the long run. Every hour of sleep you missed, for example. Maybe you think the general rules don’t apply in your case, you’re not the only one but unfortunately, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Just like a car or an airplane, you need a pit stop every once in a while.
Otherwise, all of the benefits of not taking a break (being able to get more work done, saving time) can be erased in a heartbeat if something ends up malfunctioning.
I’m sure many of you can relate to this post and I honestly hope you won’t just read it and continue with your current lifestyle. Investing in yourself always generates the highest ROI, never make the mistake of forgetting that.
