So yesterday there was this post yesterday on news.yc “Ask HN: Startup founders, would you walk us through a day in the life?” that got me thinking. What is my day like?
6:20am – One year old wakes up. Grudgingly, I do to.
6:25am – Change diaper, PJs if they’re wet, make a bottle, feed the boy, try to keep eyes open.
6:40am – Catch up on email on the iPhone while the boy plays on the family room floor. Can’t use the MacBook because he’ll want to play with it.
7:20am – Make coffee, clean the boy’s bottles, change his diaper.
8:00am – Wake up wife so I get to shower. Shower.
8:45am – Send replies that were too long for iPhone. Review where last night left us. Review what I want to get done today. Start working.
10:30am – motivate to the subway to go to the office. Pleasure read on the train.
11:15am – get to the office. Talk to office mates. Get situated, try to get back into the groove. Put off lunch as long as possible.
Lunch – try to find something cheap. Generally fail.
Rest of the day – work, have sessions with our mentors. Maybe get some dinner.
9:45pm – head home. Pass out on the subway.
10:30pm – Catch up with wife until she goes to bed.
11:00pm – 1:30am – Work.
Rinse, lather repeat and never second guess giving up that good 4 day a week job I used to have to start my own business.
It’s a pretty fancy life, eh?
