One of the advantages of being your own boss is, you don’t need to do no work if there is no work to do, that’s why if you think of becoming your own boss, you must plan a business that will work with or without you.
I define boss as “Being – owner of – self – success”. And it’s an advantage for an awakened boss simply because if there is no work, you can go to play Golf, go to learn something new, go for a walk with your special woman, or visit some family members, or you can go to the beach or go for a one-day vacation or more-days as long as there is nothing to do. Work when there is work, when there is nothing, do nothing or don’t go there, or don’t find something where there is nothing.
As I once ready in the book “The winning Investment Habits of Warren Buffet and George Soros” by Author: Mark Tier, where Soros once told his friend Byron Wien, Morgan Stanley’s US investment strategist that:
- “The trouble with you, Byron, is that you go to work every day (and think) you should do something. I don’t. I only go to work on the days that make sense to go to work. And I really do something on that day. But you go to work and do something every day and you don’t realize when it’s a special day.”
When there is nothing to do, do nothing, don’t let yourself become a slave to work even if it’s in your passion earlier. Your work must be your servant, not you being a servant to your work. Work when there is something to work on, not when there is nothing to work on. When there is no work to do, do nothing. “The trick is, when there’s nothing to do, do nothing” said, Warren Buffett.
