The things that we do for our families, right?
Today is a weekend work day – and to give my wife some much-needed rest the girls came with me to the office. They have some yummy gummy snacks, their iPads, and their coloring sets which should get me to around lunch time.
Strike that – most likely it’ll get me half-way there. These girls get bored as quickly as I do!
The challenge of building a startup company among the duties and responsibilities of family is one only few really know about. There are many who think they know but they really have no idea and it’s hard to sometimes communicate that perspective to others.
But we make do. It is both our joy and our greatest challenge. All the guys on our team have families, some even larger than my own. We do what we do because we love it and also because we love our families. In our own unique way we cherish the work and the freedom to build what we want to build with who we want to build it with and when.
It’s a tenuous business and line at times but it’s one that we collectively have committed to in, again, our own unique ways. Today, as I sit here and work, waiting for the contractors to show up to finish the room while changing the very first diaper in the new office, I find a lot of joy.
It’s the small things in life, isn’t it?
I hope you guys are having a great weekend, doing what you were uniquely created to do and loving it.
