🎚🎶🎛 Nº49– Cycling, Startups & Sales ✌🏻️

Ryan Aventis The Economist’s senior economics editor and Free Exchange columnist asks Why do We Work so Hard? suggesting our jobs have become prisons from which we don’t want to escape. Its a long read but I can certainly relate:
  • “Our social networks are made up not just of neighbours and friends, but also of clients and colleagues. This interlaced world of work and social life enriches us, exposing us to people who do fascinating things, keeping us informed of professional gossip and providing those who have good ideas with the connections to help turn them into reality. It also traps us…
Ok, BUSTED. ; ) However, if mixing professional & personal networks traps you then having kids certainly does too right?
  • “your social circle often widens when you have children, whether through antenatal courses, NCT groups or meeting other parents at playgroups.”
Props to James at the Phuse for catching this Guardian article suggesting parents may find that their ambitions crystallise once they have children. Their point is being an entrepreneur and a parent is good for business.
So, other words, I joined facebook solely to post photos of my son in 2010 but just used it to invite friends to like my company’s page today 6 years later. That makes sense to most of you but how about me now thinking to escape the overwork trap Ryan from the Economist describes that Andrew Wilkinson’s concept of lazy leadership is a good idea?
It isn’t really about being lazy. It’s about spending time on what matters and what you’re good at, then leaving everything else to your team. : )
As always, thanks for reading!
