Know Your Limit

I average about 55 hours of work per week. I have for the last few years. That includes client work but also administrative tasks, collaborative projects, writing, and self-promotion. It involves this business of design. And it’s all tracked. I really enjoy the work, most of the time. But the idea of working more than that seems absurd. Weeks clocking 80 or even 100 hours. How? There’s no way. 65 is pretty much my limit. And my goal, ultimately, is 30. A super productive, creative, moving-the-needle 30. For now I’m going to try to get my average down to 45 starting in Q4. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll keep you posted.
