Being good at what you do can be a pain

Being good at what you do can be a pain

Loser by Hugh Macleod

This just makes me laugh every time I look at it. The sentiment in this is just so true. Being successful at something is supprisingly hard - not because it's hard to be good at anything but hard because suddenly you have to do more of it, or more often. I run a business that does it's job very well and as a result I work almost around the clock. Yes, I'm in control and could change that but lets be clear that I'm not complaining here - far from it, I love my life and working hard.

I dont think anyone who sets out to do something like run a business realises just how much of a pain in the butt it can be when you are doing well. I certainly didn't, and neither did the business friends of mine. I keep telling people that the great thing about having your own business is being able to work whenever I want. If I only want to work 2 hours today - so be it. The reality is that I have all the time in the world, to work every waking hour I have hahaha. If you've been in business you will know what I mean.

The observation made in this image just makes me laugh because I think most business people have thought this as some point. I dont always feel like I'm succsessful and over loaded with people wanting Leftfield Interactive to do work for them. But on the good days, when I finish work at 4am (like today) I do wonder about the benefit of being good at what I do.

This image comes from (14 June). It's from the very funny Hugh MacLeod.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's
both equally educative and entertaining, and let
me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is
something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.

Now i'm very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but
I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.

P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I believe everything wrote was very reasonable. But, what about this?
what if you composed a catchier post title? I am not suggesting your information isn't solid, however what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?
I mean Being good at what you do can be a pain | Hayden Sanders - Thoughts from a
wild heart is kinda plain. You should glance at
Yahoo's home page and watch how they write article headlines to grab people to open the
links. You might add a related video or a related
pic or two to get readers excited about what you've got to say.

In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit
more interesting. plenty of fish natalielise
