Building business isn't easy. I knew that when I started; however, I thought by now I would have figured something out. For Christ sake I have been at this for about five years now.
Someday's I feel that it just isn't for me then I give up and within a week I am working on something new. My drive has caused friction in my family and relationships and I would get angry when I don't have time complete my projects or have any time to work on them.
My wife supports me but would rather me be present for our son and now more than ever that time is important. The time I spend stressing on not getting to work on projects in lieu of the required life tasks actually stresses her out more than me.
None of this is her fault. Time management is my responsibility. It is YOUR responsibility. As entrepreneurs it is our responsibility to priorities what is important and sometimes I get distracted and forget. It isn't that I don't know time with my new son is important and that maintaining a connected relationship with my wife isn't important. I'm not stupid.
It feels like a complete nightmare sometimes -- that constant drive to build and create.
If you have that feeling as well, don't worry about ever losing it or letting it escape you because it never will. You have it in you to do big things. That drive you have to press on, it's not going anywhere.
Keep pressing on. I may say regularly that "I'm done" but people like you and me can never be done. Just focus, prioritize, and take a step back. Focus on what is important and not urgent. What is important now is your health, family, and friends. There is time to complete your projects and launch your business.
Take a break and a deep breath. We both know you aren't giving up any time soon.
We are in this for the long haul.
Comment below and tell me how many times you've called it quits and decided to get back on the saddle.
I look forward to hearing from you.
