I'm at risk of sounding old I know, but then I am 50, and age brings wisdom right! Actually it does. I'm from the era when presenteeism was a thing, you had to be in the office longest, you had to be hustling, and grinding dawn to dusk. Evidence shows (and I think you intuitively know) that less is more. You are more productive when you sleep well, and when you balance time grafting, and time thinking, and resting.

As a Start-up Founder, or early stage employee, yes it's tempting to put in 70 hour weeks, and sometime it feels like you need to (and very occasionally it is) but hold back, for the sake of your health, your personal relationships, and for the sake of your business. Work less, work better, work smart, sleep well (and drink a lot of water!)

At Hyperion we work with some of the most amazing founders and start-ups in the cleantech sector, guiding them to find the very best talent to enable their growth and success. If you are a founder/CEO and want to learn more about how we do that, and who for, drop me a line for a conversation at David.hunt@hyperionsearch.com or at David Hunt on Linked In.
