Lots of times the grass isn’t greener.
Recently I was reading a couple of bios of solopreneurs and single founder SAAS companies.
They were still struggling. Small companies, $20-100k a year in revenue. Are they successful? I guess success is in eye of the beholder.
I think for me, true financial freedom begins with at least $2 million in the bank. Easier way to do that quickly would be to build a bigger business ($1-2million a year in revenue) and have talented employees (and co-owners?) to share the work load?
I’m not too sure, but I’m beginning to think all wealth is based on people. You have to talk to your customers, creating great value for them, as well as have a very talented team. Employees, management team, advisors etc.
Wu Wei, meaning do-nothing doing.
I guess I kinda live this philosophy.
I try to waste little effort. To be calmly productive.
No need for stress. Try to do only things you enjoy. Try to make the unenjoyable or monotonous enjoyable.
Sometimes I think there might not be a meaning to life.
But maybe the meaning of life is to figure out your meaning of life.
Happy Father’s Day.
I’m reminded of things I am grateful for today.
I have a gratitude list that puts me in a serene mood.

Are you in control of your life? There’s things you can’t control, like your environment. But are you in control of your actions?
Self-Control is key to a life actualized.
If you don’t have self-control, you are a slave to your past habits and conditioning. I think few people actually mindfully choose their conditioning or habits.
They get their habits from their parents, family, friends, environment. Do you ever look within yourself and ask, “Who do I want to be?”, “How do I want to act?”.
Sadly most people do not, they think they are powerless… they think it’s of no use.
If you aren’t in control of yourself, you are simply letting your environment and other people control you.
