Startups aren’t 9-5s. They aren’t places to go on paid vacation for 2 weeks… right after the software launched. If there’s a goal of 20 and you have 1… it is not time to go on vacation. If one developer goes on vacation…. that doesn’t mean everyone goes on vacation. Your goal is 20!!! not 1. Seriously… what is going on. In a Startup the CEO takes out the trash, gets his or her own coffee, and is the first one in/last one out. Startups are not for people whose only goal is to be paid a biweekly salary. They are not places for people to be lazy and order $2800 MacBooks and ergonomic chairs.
The old Acura RDX 08 has been great… However… it’s 7 years later. If I was really spend thrifty I would wait until 2017…. But then the car would be 8 years old. The only bad thing about saving for a new car is I should theoretically eat out less. In 2015 I ate out around 400 times including lunch, breakfast, and dinner. The average bill was around $15. This is according to Mint. If I eat out 75% less which Mint tells me is about right… I should be able to save $4,500 a year. I find these numbers difficult to believe…
Art was something I enjoy immensely. Ever since I took art classes in elementary school I’ve love sketching and drawing. I took manga drawing classes in middle school and high school. Those were a lot of fun. My senior project was a Manga series which I published online. There’s something about creating your own characters that’s very appealing to me. In many ways it similar to having your own startup. You live the adventure.
This Saturday was awesome. Mainly because I know next Saturday is going to be incredibly busy with personal stuff. I got a lot accomplished. Ran a lot of errands. Some successful, some not…. And I set it up so I can finish my blogs. Here!! and either code/make marketing videos. I haven’t decided. My day started at 6am which is incredibly early. I just woke up from a nap. I’m all set for a productive night. Starbucks and Monster drinks ready to go. I’m predicting I can go until 5am in the morning. Under that time line I have about 7 hours of sheer productivity. Nighttime is so efficient for work. Utter silence.
I’m pretty happy with this Sunday. I binged on the walking dead (as background noise… I’ve already seen it). Finished most of my errands. The study room is still a bit of a mess. I may clean that after I’m done this blog. I got 4 articles up. 4 blogs. All the videos for my lion channel. And feel really relaxed and happy. Played with the kitten and got a longer nap in. Outside of my study room being a complete disaster zone right now, I would say pretty productive weekend. My fantasy team is also doing amazing. Yeah… if I can get myself to clean up study room it will be a good weekend. And maybe do some craigslist content creation on google documents.
