I’m back to running non-stop these days to the point everyone is wondering what’s going on in my head, let alone where the heck am I, and why am I working at 2/ 4AM weekdays AND weekends.
Indeed, I’ve felt a bit… occupied. So much so that I’ve forgotten a lot of my usual tasks and daily routines (like eating). If you were thinking about what it’s like to run with an early-stage startup, this could be you.
Luckily, there are still several things I do (trying to get to consistency) to keep myself “stable” and operating at peak condition. One of those is still reading and learning to which, the following are posts that are standing out in my head.
- How Exercise Shapes You, Far Beyond the Gym – about how enduring challenges in the gym shapes how we challenge ourselves (and find fulfillment) beyond
- Resilience Is About How You Recharge, Not How You Endure – taking time offline and unplugged
- The Happy Secret to Better Work – Ted talk with the key message for me about taking time out from work and disconnecting. Meditation being one way
I share these because it’s always interesting to see what is resonating and leaves residues over time. Could point to me a realization to take time off.
