|Today I took a 20 minute break from work and took my daughter for a walk around the neighborhood, and I didn't feel the slightest bit bad about it. Of all the promises of independence, being able to take that kind of time when you need it is the best.|
They will tell you that independence is about harder work, more pressure, and less certainty. They're telling the truth. What they aren't telling you is that it's also about happiness. Harder work isn't a burden when the product is worthwhile. Pressure isn't bad when the source of the pressure is a goal that's in your power to achieve. Uncertainty can be minimized with attention to detail, planning, and business practices.
The ultimate goal is happiness for you and the people you love. Does that sound like the wrong goal for a business venture? If you're not moving towards that goal, then you're doing something wrong.
