About a year ago, I realized I wasn’t spending enough time doing the things I love: hanging out with my kids, surfing, traveling. Life started to feel lousy.
I’m a founder of a fast-growing contract management software company that more than triples its revenue each year. When founding the business, I thought, “I’m going to work 14-hour shifts for two to three years.” Like many startup founders, I planned to give myself more time once I “got things off the ground.” Well, three years later, things were well off the ground, and I realized I actually had less time than before. Something had to change.
