Some people aren’t fortunate enough to even have a long healthy life. And even if you do get fortunate enough for that, how many years do you really have to achieve and attain what you want in life and be in a position where you can actually enjoy it? To be able to reach a certain age in life and to be able to enjoy the fruits of of your efforts.
Certainly as a business owner, you get so caught up sometimes in the hustle, in working hard. I’m certainly not trying to suggest otherwise – that it doesn’t take hustle and hard work to build a business. But… just another one of those experiences yesterday, where it makes you kind of stop and think, “What is my end goal? What is my purpose?…

And then because you have to work harder, you have to work more hours.
You can indeed set your business up in a way where it doesn’t require you to be the one doing all of the work all of the time. And I think that that’s definitely something important for a lot of business owners and entrepreneurs to look at… To understand why they got started in a business in the first place. To understand why they actually want to achieve and attain the things they’re striving towards.
