Brian Balfour on Workaholism

See the original post here, as featured in today’s Startup Digest reading list:

Workaholics

While some have their head in a book, others just have their head down.  It is easy to think that the more hours you put in the more progress you will make, but this leads us to incremental and linear progress, when we need to be on an exponential path.  Ultimately, the progress produced by working harder is limited by the hours in the day and the capacity of the human body. The entrepreneurs who brag of 100+ hour work weeks, are also the entrepreneurs that burn out the fastest.
