I've read about half of Michael Gerber's 'The E-myth Revisited' today and have had a few big realisations about how I'm working.
Part of the appeal of going freelance, or working for myself was that I would be my 'own boss'.
In reality, this meant that I had no boss.
I was in charge, I did what I like.
I worked when I was motivated and rested at other times.
Now, though, I am looking to take my business to the next level and I realise I'm going to need to be much stricter with myself.
I need deadlines. I need structured systems and I need order.
I think I've allowed the creative part of my brain to dictate too much.
I need to regain balance and have structure and order in there too.
The fact I am writing this post shows that a different part of my brain has been engaged.
Let's see where it goes.
