I have been officially working full time on my first product at Zazen Labs for nearly a month and as I promised, I will reflect on my first month.
Your experience and mileage may vary as you are not… me.
Oh, sweet sweet freedom:
Since this is the beginning, I am as free as one can be.
I can organize my life however the fuck I want. I can meet with friends at 3 pm. I can choose to work or not. I started to run in the morning because I’m not afraid to be late at work.
This is… exciting:
I can’t help but think about what will happen this year. Having to do everything, EVERYTHING for your company means that there is learning to do. Like, A LOT.
Oh geez, I’m that free.
I always had a hard time to focus and when you can do everything but working, it may be hard to crunch it. I’m still figuring out how to be focused and productive for at least 35-40h a week.
Yeah, sure, learning is good but as a one-man operation, you will suck at nearly everything. Have to accept the painful learning process. Don’t spend too much time reading about the stuff. Go do it and be terrible at it.
I saw myself as a hermit. I don’t need much social interaction to be a happy camper…
WELL, UNTIL WORKING ALL ALONE AT HOME.

It’s 2018, there is so much content tied with entrepreneurship, the indie hackers/
You can spend 100% of your time reading about the next hot stuff around.
How X launched a start-up in 24h?
How Y built a multi-million business in 18 months?
