i woke up this morning at the crack of 9 cause i have a "light" day today. the sun is out shining, birds chirping, a slight breeze... the perfect day to go out and bust some hump to make some money or not. i decided to take today "off". Even on days off i still find myself working. i've made about half a dozen calls on estimates and other business oddities. I'll probably go out later and measure out a patio job and get an estimate ready for the HO. I've still got to go to the bank. I've gotta fill up the truck and equipment for my mowing later in the week. I've gotta chase down one deadbeat who owes me money. The blades need sharpening. i need to mix up more 2stroke. i need to grease up the spindles on the WB. i need .... the more you do business the more time it takes in overhead and non-revenue-generating time. Its just another reminder to the newer guys that the sweatin' hours aren't all the hours truly involved with running a business. The last reason for taking today off is that tomorrow (weds) is my last class/final for one of my degrees. after that class i've got a heavy workload for teh rest of the summer. So i figure anyway that i can get ahead of myself now will help me starting thursday.
