Aside from a LOT of yard work, I spent a chunk of time grinding away on This Startup over the holiday weekend.
One thing that I have appreciated is that when you are working on something that you are excited and passionate about, work does not feel like work. As a the founder of an idea stage startup, success is based entirely on our ability to execute. Putting in the time to do work on a three day weekend, doesn’t feel like work because it’s what I want to spend my time on.
There is a signboard in the office that says,
Nothing screws up your Friday like realizing it’s only Wednesday.
While this is funny, it’s not a feeling that I have now because I am doing what I enjoy. Hopefully this will last as we begin to see traction come out from the effort that we are putting in.
