Do Startup Owners Ever Truly Take a Break?
“A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you’ve been taking.”
It doesn’t take much reading on this blog or talking to me to discover that I am a big fan of Tim Ferriss’s book The Four Hour Workweek. I remember browsing through the Barnes and Noble (before showrooming became popular), seeing his book, and becoming intrigued. A cup of coffee and a bunch of pages later, I was hooked and bought it.
Recently, I had drinks with a friend who is in a similar situation as we are, and he was talking about the book and complaining how most of the people he knew who read it misconstrued what Ferriss was really talking about with that book.
The book isn’t about working 4 hours a week and then kicking back in your recliner with your feet up on the ottoman drooling at your 183” flat screen TV all day.
It’s about living with intentionality, doing something that is meaningful and important to you in your life, and not waiting until you’re on the tail end of your life to try to do all of the things that you told yourself that you’d do when you retired.
However, the premise in the title of the book is also pretty darn appealing. Build a business, automate, set it up to where it runs, check in occasionally, and voila! A four hour workweek.
I had those visions of sugar plums dancing through my head when we started up our company.
