“Time spent recharging your batteries and maintaining your physical and mental health is not wasted. It is a necessity. Time frittered away attending to tasks easily achieved but relatively inessential to your ultimate goal is wasted—a criminal waste of a precious resource.”
We live in a day and age of extreme speed.
No — addiction to extreme speed. It’s not that life is inherently fast; it’s that we want it to be fast. Some of us, NEED it to be fast. I found myself living in this zone for several years.
If something was not happening every 5 minutes, I was “bored.” If a business didn’t provide enough novelty, I was bored and had to create a new one. The “King of Chaos,” they called me. Staff wanted me to stay OUT of their projects.
Because if I got in, I’d burn it all down just to build something brand new.
If you are an entrepreneur reading this, you are slowly shrinking into your chair realizing I’m not just talking about ME. I’m talking about you, too.
Take it from this German short story, originally published in 1963:
The Businessman and the Fisherman
