How hard can you work?

How hard can you work?

I work pretty hard, but I really need to step it up. It is easy to get in a routine of letting your normal workload exhaust you, however that exhaustion isn’t enough to justify being satisfied at the end of the day. I’m talking about working every spare moment you have and making it second nature. 

A lot of times these blogs are written while laying in bed, feeling guilty that I didn’t produce enough content. I watched too much tv today, I rested on the couch too much, I spent too much time at dinner or simply I didn’t motivate myself to accomplish anything.

My day job is what pays the bills and I pour a lot of my energy and passion into it. I love what I do, but it’s not going to get me to the next level of succes. So I have to crush it at my day job and then have enough energy to make something worth a damn when I get home. It’s a lot of pressure, but I do my best work under pressure.

So why not just be under pressure all the time and then I will be putting out great work all the time? It sounds like a little overkill but it’s what has to be done to achieve the level of success I am looking for. 

Did I mention I have a wife and two kids as well? My version of succes includes not neglecting my family, so… there is some massive pressure for you. I am currently loving this new adventure I’m on and don’t want it to stop. I get excited every time I have something new to share with the world, and the reaction to it is instant satisfaction. 

With a renewed urgency to just work my brains out, I can’t wait to see what the next few months are going to lead to. 

Please follow me on my journey on my Facebook page which is the hub of all my content.

San Francisco the best city I would never want to live in.

San Francisco the best city I would never want to live in.

I recently took a short 3 day business trip to SF and it was great! It had been almost two years since my last visit and I had forgotten how beautiful the city was.

One of the benefits of success is being able to travel the world. When you travel and experience other cultures you can really expand your way of thinking. Use your travels as a learning experience to help understand how different people think.

Understanding a person is a key component in finding the best way to coloaborate or create a lasting relationship. These relationships can help lead you to success.

This city in particular is great to visit but the hugely inflated prices makes it ludicrous to live in. The status and talent in the city attracts some of the largest companies in the world, however it also spawns some of the most well funded startups.

I will be traveling to this city frequently this year for one such startup that was purchased by the company I work for. Expect to get more updates on this wonderful city.
