At Breakfast yesterday one of my friends made a comment that really made me think about how obsessed I have been in the past year whilst building the business. “Mat’s more fun these days, he doesn’t reject us every time we ask him to hang out now” was the comment.
To be honest I think this may be because I am focusing a little bit more on my health in recent months, making sure that I am leaving the office and get into the sun, exercise and socialise a little bit more. I think as founders it is important to be 150% committed to what you are doing, but one thing that I have come to realise is that if you don’t make anytime for at least some play – you will end up becoming unhealthy and slightly crazy.
I have decided that as I schedule everything else in my week, it makes sense for me to do the same with Playtime each week. Whether it is going to the park for lunch with my team as I did in the video above or making sure that I walk every morning or afternoon – in the long run these things are only going to make me healthier and more focused so that I can be a better business builder.
Do you make time for Play? What are some of the things that you guys do to keep focused during the work week – Keen to hear!
Schedule in your playtime right now on your calendar.
Have a great week guys!
