Recently, I've gotten very comfortable. More comfortable than ever, really. I'm living in what is in my mind the greatest city in the country, working at the home of Country Music, and spending my time with some of the most genuine people I've ever met. I wouldn't trade this summer for anything, but I am walking away from these last few months of my life less productive than I've ever been since I launched my first business over 4 years ago.
For those of you who don't know, I stopped actively advertising or working with new clients, and virtually ceased all operations of West Bielstein Production Services in March. I did this because I wasn't happy with the direction the business was headed and I wanted to take some time to rediscover myself. I got a real job, the first "real job" where I actually had somebody who told me when I needed to be at work and what I need to do, that I've ever had. I work hard at my job, or try to at least, and come home with a decent paycheck.
Because of this, I chose to get comfortable. This has been the first time in the last 5 years of my life that I haven't been actively trying to grow a company's success. I get up in the morning and don't have something to do besides show up at work - and it's amazing.
But, I'm so bored.
I've never been so comfortable in my life, yet I feel like I'm not doing anything.
