Leaving home over 2 hours earlier in the morning to see a client far away. First business meeting at 7:30am the next day with a dinner a 6:00pm. It is all about doing what is necessary to get the job done.
However, I believe it is important to mix getting the job done with a balance. Ensure that despite long hours you find dedicated time for your family and have days that just aren’t as hectic.
If life gets out of balance (which it often does) you can’t get ahead by working more hours. If your marriage falls apart or your family don’t know you then your work will suffer and no one wins.
Getting the job done isn’t about working harder always. It’s about sprinting when you need to and maintaining the balance so you can continue to deliver good work week in and week out.
