I am blessed with a growing company. We are definitely growing in strength of quality and quantity, and with it is growing pains that is associated with a growing company.
On one hand, I am proud that we are able to serve more and more people, as we level up, hire the best therapists we can; on the other hand, we are somewhat victims of our success - my wife, she has never been so tired before.
I am seeing her work 12-hour clinicals, on top of administrative duties and work after. Six days a week. Of course, my job is no easy task as well, requiring similar amount of effort and work.
Sometimes I do wonder that as we grow, are we also growing and creating a monster of a business that just demands more and more of our time? This was initially one of my fundamental concerns, which made me very fearful. I mean, then I was working 7 days per week, and now even though we work less, but seriously, my mind is always attuned to work.
I sleep, breathe, drink, talk, think, love work.
Maybe this is what that grows the business. Our paranoia and work ethics.
