For those who are getting depressed reading my entries this one will be a breath of fresh air, like receiving a pick-me-up bouquet from Merlin Olsen. You might be an entrepreneur if…you’ve risked permanent bladder damage because you don’t take time to go to the bathroom.
What’s the longest time you’ve sat working without getting up? I don’t keep regular track of it, but I know there are plenty of times I’ve sat in my chair for six hours straight, and there are probably a few times when it has been longer. There are times when I’ve had to go to the bathroom, bad, but I’ve held it for four hours because I’m just too busy to get up. Every time I even think about getting up to go to the bathroom, which is only a few steps away, something comes to mind that I need to take care of and I think “Wait, I better do that before I go or I’ll forget.” And then four hours later, I’m still doing the same thing.
It never occurred to me that this was a commonplace occurence amongst entrepreneurs until I was in a class taught by one and he referred to the “entrepreneur’s dance” and then hopped around in a manner that made it obvious what the dance was about.
