My name is Shayn Baron and I’m addicted to my startup. I go to bed excited about Crocagile. I wake up excited about Crocagile. Throughout the day and most nights, I work within Crocagile (eating my own dog food). When it’s my day off, I find myself working anyway.
Some nights, It’s difficult to sleep because ideas constantly pop into my head. If I fight them, I end up tossing and turning, unable to “shut down”. The morning comes and I feel as though I haven’t slept. I’ve learned if I jump out of bed and record my thoughts, It puts my mind at ease and I can finally rest. So in some sick way, feeding my addiction helps me sleep better at night.
At times, I feel guilty because I know I haven’t spent nearly enough time with family, friends, the house, and a plethora of other things. Then I remind myself that this phase of our startup is only temporary, and soon we’ll hire more believers to share the load. For now, I need to feed the beast
