I was chatting with a former colleague the other day who has two professional persona – one is as a financial analyst and the other is as a tech entrepreneur. His challenge has been that his focus was definitely split.
That said, he has created a fairly workable solution. First, he continues to do a great job at work and doesn’t “indulge” in his tech venture while his is working for his employer. Second, he makes appointments with himself to work on his tech company – he goes to a coffee shop during his lunch hour and devotes at least one day in his weekend to his start-up.
My former colleague is finding ways to win, despite the challenge of “double vision”.
Have a great weekend,
