It’s the perfect time to think hard about your business, your life.
This is the best time to think about some of the things that matter to you, your family, your community, and what matters to you now. It’s also an excellent time to think about how you can change your life for the better. You can’t do this alone. In fact, you probably shouldn’t even try running your own small business.
Well, this is one of those topics that’s easy to ignore. So I’m going to assume that you’ve already started. But if you haven’t, you’re probably missing out. I don’t mean that you should stop going to business school, and instead just start a small business or something. That’s totally possible; you’re probably going to become an incredibly successful entrepreneur who does have a little bit of extra money coming in just by working hard and making good decisions.
I am not saying you should just quit and start working for yourself. I am saying that you should go into it with a healthy dose of skepticism and be willing to take some risks. It might pay off in the long run, but I would imagine that you wont really understand it.
Well, maybe. I have to say I’m not a fan of starting a business right away. If you’re good at something, you’ll probably be good at something else, so you might not want to start right away. I also think that you need to learn to be more patient and work with people that you dont’ know. I guess that’s what I meant by the last sentence.
It’s hard not to be patient when youre starting something new-ish, but it can be harder to be patient if you have a boss that keeps bugging you to do something. It’s not so much that I dislike being patient, it’s more that I think it takes a lot more work. I think you need to learn to be more patient than a boss who is pressuring you to do something you dont want to do. Just ask me how I know.
Today is a new day. So today is the day that I wake up and begin my new job. I was starting to worry that I wouldn’t be up to finishing it. That it couldn’t happen so quickly. And yet, here it is. I can’t wait to get started.
I too was starting to worry how fast I would be able to finish my job. That it would be so easy and there would be so little to do. But here it is, and I have no problem starting. As a contractor, I am going to have a lot of tasks that I dont want to do and that arent a priority. But because I have been building a new home, I am not going to have to get everything done that I dont want to.
It doesn’t seem like much of anything has been planned in advance, but that’s because it has been. The biggest task on this list, the one that’s going to take the longest, is painting the exterior of the home. For all of the other tasks, I have a few weeks to play with the paint, just like I play with the rest of the house.
