It’s a marathon – not a sprint

When I notice I’m all stressed-out about something, or driving myself to exhaustion, I remember that bike ride, and try dialing back my effort by 50%.

It’s been amazing how often everything gets done just as well and just as fast, with what feels like 50% of the effort.

This goes with a tenant I have tried to use at every startup – it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

Why? Because if you burnout out, get sick of your gig or are less happy – then no one wins.
