Burning bridges has always been my way of forcing myself to get things done. War lords in many eras in history used the same way to motivate their soldiers and get the most out of them, having no possible way back is the greatest motivation, the survival instinct will push you beyond limits you never thought possible.
Recently I co-founded a company with two of my friends and I have been slowly and carefully burning all bridges that lead to -the laid back, freelancing, waking up whenever I want, working whenever I want, meeting financial commitments with minimum efforts, taking long vacations 5 times a year- life.
And today I burn the very last bridge. It’s not easy, and very scary.
