I have been wide awake for 44 of the past 48 hours, flirting between the following duties:
- setting staff objectives
- company accounting
- customer relations
- client account management
- marketing and search engine optimisation
When I’m busy, I hardly notice the time passing and have to set alarms to remind me of meetings throughout the day. If I’m not doing anything I have to ask myself why – time spent procrastinating could be better put to other things. Although I vent my frustrations with work quite regularly, on the whole I do thoroughly enjoy the entrepreneurial life.
However, being my own boss allows for a good work-life balance. Although I often start early, finish late and regularly roll consecutive days into one, I put time aside for the things that matter to me in life – my wife and our now 1 month old baby boy for a start. I don’t get down the gym as much as I’d like (last visit 2005?) but I do play regular football, the odd game of golf and keep in tune with my social network.
