So, you bought supplies, you got up at 6 and you have plenty of things to do today.
Well, I know, the temptation of just wearing a pajama is big, but DON’T DO IT just because you have no plans to go out!
Here’s my story.
In my first years of solo-enterpreneurship I used to wake up, have a quick coffee and immediately sit down straight in front of my mac for a couple of hours, without even brushing my teethes or changing clothes (that’s it, staying in my sleepwear).
Well, those times weren’t great… Why? Because day after day it became harder and harder to keep up with the outside world: going out was a pain (have a shower, shave, put on some clean and ironed clothes, wear shoes…).
It was such a big effort that every time I had to go out for a meeting or to do some shopping, I was fifteen or thirty minutes late because I was not used to deal with a normal and structured life and with the idea of how could I possibly leave my desk.
When my ex-girlfriend decided to leave me I had to react… I tried to re-conquer her by going out more, hanging out with some old friends hoping to meet her somewhere in town and hopefully rebuild a relationship, but it was too late, for her, but not for me!
I didn’t had a girlfriend anymore, but I finally realized that it was possible, even fun, to be always ready to go out, have fun, meeting people and living a life that’s mainly outside of my doors.
The lesson learned is: don’t let yourself go. Don’t be a victim of laziness and try to always work at home like you’d be in a real office in downtown.
