More than anything, I think this is also a superb story and lesson in ‘what do we work for?’ It’s a question that plagues me, as my Dad has his own company and I can see the parallels quite clearly, and I myself have a company that I’m focused on growing.
There is no right or wrong — but maybe we’re all a little too intent on building rather than experiencing. I type this ironically as I’m currently taking a short break as I work through the weekend…
Last year old friends would ask, “How are you doing Karl?” and inevitably my response would be, “Busy But Good”. And I started to question if that was actually true. Was ‘busy’ good? Or was it just…busy.
That’s for you to decide.
