Starting something from scratch in a competitive space requires a huge time commitment. Google how much the Olympians in Rio trained. Are they idiots who just don’t understand work/life balance? Or do they have passion and want to be the best in the world at something?
There is a definite correlation between time commitment and outcome when it comes to startups, just like most things in life. You can play soccer on the weekends or you can go for gold. It’s your personal choice.
Who would you bet on to get the gold medal, the person training all the time or the person chilling out half the time?
