What's wrong with 27h days?

A very quick yet poignant post by Anita Sharpe on Worthwhile entitled Let’s Hear it for the Overworked Brain surgeon.

It’s a great point about the necessity for down time. The necessity for a break. When is too much? I’ve taken a look at the people around and it’s not just the nine-to-fivers ( or should I call the seven-to-whatever-ers) that do it. I’ve been noticing the worst culprits are the entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs naturally are doing things that inspire them, that get their juices going. It’s easy to forget about time and to be working when it’s something that lights a fire under you. But I ask all of you self employed people out there…When was the last time you had a weekend? When was the last time you took a day off?. I know that all of you would easily come back to me full of excuses as to why. Full of reasoning that you can’t afford not to. I say blah blah blah! If you keep it up…you’ll burn out, and then nothing will get done. Which is worse?
