A business is a marathon, not a sprint

Boy, I’m tired.  My tendency to go too hard is well known in my work life as I tend to burn out every few years.  This time, I have to keep reminding myself that a business is marathon and not a sprint.

While I’m overseas visiting family these next few weeks, I plan to spend some time thinking about how I can reprioritise my time better.  Even though I’m trying to keep costs down by doing everything myself, tiredness reduces my ability to think strategically.  I find myself buried in the task list without asking myself if that’s the best use of my time.

So, I’m committing to myself right now to get more sleep and to become smarter about where to spend my time moving forward.  For I can’t afford to burn out this time.
