Day 13: I Hate Working On Sundays

New rule: no more working on Sundays. (Ideally, no more working on weekends in general!)


I really hate having to do work on the weekends. Usually, for my FT engineering job, this isn't the case. (The last two weeks have been super intense and rough, however.)


Professional writing during the weekend, on the other hand, happens way too frequently. I spent too much time writing for Forbes when I'm barely getting paid.


For Founder to Founder, my Substack newsletter, if I'm disciplined, I can usually get it all done during the weekdays after work.


Like I said in my vlog, I'm planning to drastically cut down on my Forbes writing. I am spending way too much time on it given the low pay and the limited upside at this point.


I want my weekends for myself. I want to spend time with family and friends, not stuck in my room writing for someone who I don't know well.
