Day #83: Cutting Back On The Forbes Writing

I'm very happy that I've drafted the majority of my stories for this month and next.


The fact that I'm not having to stay up late to write them is a huge plus.


I hate how much Forbes writing has taken over my life. I think one of the biggest regrets I have is that there were a bunch of weekends I stayed in writing instead of exploring Southern California.


I have no shame in saying I made the wrong choice.


I'll expand more on this in a future blog post, but the consequence is that I am heavily biased against writing full profiles for startups anymore after I've hit 100 stories (and any others I may have promised before). It literally does not make sense for me from both a time and money perspective to write these.
