This morning I woke up at 3AM. Couldn’t sleep.
But now I’m working. What’s cool about running your own business is you can do that.
You can work until 3AM, or you can wake up at 3AM and start working.
I don’t have any meetings this week, and I don’t have to “be up and on Slack” at a certain time.
Back when I had a regular job, I would get so stressed about my sleep problems. I wouldn’t be able to fall asleep, and I would sit and think about how I wasn’t going to get enough sleep.
I realize that this is a bit privileged because I don’t have kids... But even if I did have kids, I’d still be able to wake up early and get solid work done and then have time for the kids.
47.1% of people choose to own their own time. These are also the kind of people that also want to be able to wake up at 3AM, not have any bullshit meetings, and live life on their own terms.
You can’t put a price on that.
