I am a deadline driven kind of person.
Without a workout goal I languish in excuses for not going to the gym or going for a jog.
Without a clear deadline for a project, I easily prioritize away from what needs to be done for what I feel like working on.
My big why for starting the business that I have started was to live a great lifestyle and do some income arbitrage. I felt that if I could live in Spain, and take care of a few big bookkeeping clients remotely, then I could make way more money than I was making in my day job in Spain, I could work with the clients I enjoyed working with, and I work way less hours than I was working at my day job.
The results would be a happier Chad, a happier family, a deeper connection with my father the partner in the business, and an enhanced feeling of contributing to the economy and the people who I inherently connect with.
At present I am in the throws of growing pains. I am on the verge of tears because it is Sunday afternoon and instead of spending the weekend with my family I have been working. My children are grumpy and my poor wife is bearing the brunt of their frustration.
