It is a hard life being King, but someone has to do it...
After about 30 years of working like a dog I have reached a point of not having to work. At first I was in denial. How could things go on without me always pushing? What example am I setting if I take a break from working 12 hours a day?
Well, about a month ago I ditched the software consulting to focus on our business and then discovered that the business runs just fine if I don't micromanage it. We have great people who know exactly what to do almost all of the time.
So, I spend an hour or two in the mornings reviewing the days plans and then after that I read books translated into Spanish to improve my ability in the language. I am also studying grammar too.
But I am finding that I can actually manage not to feel like I have to be product all the time. This is freeing my mind to think of new ways of doing business. This of course is my excuse for goofing off.
What is really helping is my family telling me that I have done enough and I deserve to be a slug. Though Jsharr is trying to figure out how to make my horses poop in my hammock - life is good.
Jsharr - you do know that from where I am sitting you are a Yankee?
