Ten years ago, I learned a very valuable lesson. I was working my tail off and had been for a while. My normal day consisted of waking up at 5 a.m., spending an hour or so responding to emails, then writing for an hour. I would then spend a few rushed minutes with my family, workout, and jump to seven hours straight of coaching calls.
After another hour or so of responding to emails and voicemails, I would finally rush home or to one of the children’s sporting events, and then hit the laptop again for some more writing and emailing before getting to bed.
