Psssst. I’m gonna let you into a little secret.
But you can’t tell anyone, okay?
I hate Mondays.
Yeah, yeah, I know — the modern, “with-it”, head-unfucked business owner and entrepreneur should love Mondays, right?
That’s what all the cool kids are saying: if you hate Mondays, you must have a shit business.
Well, I call doo-doo. I reckon there’s some cosmic, universal rule that means Mondays suck.
I love what I do, and my business makes me happy (mostly — anyone who says they love it 24/7… well, I have my suspicions).
But Mondays can do one.
Because I love my weekends. They’re my time. Time for me and Joe and our cats and our chickens and the ridiculous amount of work we have to do on our Dingle.
Here’s what I don’t have anymore, though:
Sunday night existential dread.
Do you remember that? For me, it was strongest when I was at school and hating it, because I was the weird one who didn’t really fit into a group.
Then it persisted into adulthood when I had a job. That Sunday evening feeling.
And — surprise, surprise! — it lingered even when I started my own business.
I was all, WTF? I thought running my own business would get rid of that feeling once and for all.
Now, I’m all, AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Funny.
Because running a business is bloody hard work. It’s constant worry about where the money to pay the bills will come from. It’s drowning under the weight of a million Things To Do and not knowing where to start. It’s stressing about how to stand out.
But it doesn’t have to be that way any longer.
It stays bloody hard work, don’t misunderstand me — but it doesn’t have to be constant worry about feast and famine, endless drowning in overwhelm, and continual stress about how to get noticed in a world where everyone bleats the same stuff over and over again.
