“I would say since that burnout period, I think that I’ve actually had a difficulty recommitting to that vision, even though it’s the same vision, it’s the same mission from pre-burnout.
I’m much less willing to just drive myself to the edge than I used to be. And I think I care a lot more about my personal wellbeing than I used to. I’m not willing to compromise sleep as much as I used to. And I’m not willing to work until 10:00 PM as often as I used to.”
On this episode of Think Like a Founder, SNP’s Co-Founder & CEO, Maureen Taylor gets Will Landry’s thoughts on…
- Investing in your fire
- Being self-critical
