Don’t overwork. It’s not worth it

I use to work usually 12 – 14 hours. Once my father visited us. He observed me every day going early to work and returning very late. One Sunday, he asked: “Are you running away from you or genuinely working so much?”

My wife replied, saying he comes a bit early because of him being here with us.

He said: “Today, you are working hard to make money. Tomorrow you will need to work harder to arrange the money for medical expenses.” His thoughts changed my lifestyle and working habits forever.

Most people write “think big,” “change the world,” “be prudent,” “work hard,” “peddle fast and focus,” as a must for becoming a successful entrepreneur.

It makes you so stressed that you start putting in extra hours, stop caring about your health and struggle to stay closer to your loved ones.
Don’t kill yourself — you have chosen to become an entrepreneur to create a more meaningful life. If you feel down and out, stop it.

Call me if things get too stressful. Or more importantly, make sure you take sleep for 8 hours and relax.

A relaxed body and calm mind boost your concentration, attention, decision-making skills, creativity, social skills, better health and decreases mood fluctuations, stress, anger, and impulsiveness.
