In an article called The First Year: 7 Lessons Learned, James Archer from Forty Media talks about what he has learned about running a business. They are some good tips:

  • Lesson 1: Don’t forget to plan for success.
  • Lesson 2: Don’t let the Good keep you from the Great.
  • Lesson 3: Don’t deliver junk.
  • Lesson 4: Long hours? Poor project management.
  • Lesson 5: Buy good stuff.
  • Lesson 6: Get involved
  • Lesson 7: Remember the point.

Especially Lesson 4, I see a lot of people who running their own business has long hours, and never feel they are doing enough. James gave a lot of good indications why you may do that and suggested a well managed project should be fitted into 40 hours per week.
