In the past couple of weeks I was very motivated to learn coding and to build my website (Progress Thread below). I was driven by @MJDemarco idea from Unscripted that you have to live temporarily unbalanced (work, work, work) to live in the long-term a balanced life (work whenever you want).

Through this mindset I worked more. Also almost all the time I thought about my idea, to-dos and the progress. After some weeks I have recognized that I wasn't anymore that productive. I couldn't concentrate for too long and generally my work output got lower and lower. Then I thought about my situation and figured I should take some time off to relax. Now I feel more balanced and able to create great things.

I searched the forum for this topic and stumbled over the idea that you should enjoy every day.

How can I connect this with the hard working attitude which throws life out of balance ? Do I miss something?

Is it about finding little pleasures also in the days you work as hell or finding more enjoyment in the work you do?

I highly recommend to read this thread about a similar topic:
Best use of your time vs. enjoyment of your time

No friend, you've not missed anything. That's how this Entrepreneur game is. You just have to grind in hard and smart. Get into a feedback loop. Do things with a proper plan. That's how you make it a journey of worthwhile ride.

If you know you are on the right path, just press it on man.

Do you have an end product in mind before learning how to code?

Yes I do. Maybe I should focus more on the final product and what value I will be able to provide through my service than the to dos I have ?
