The Holidays are coming up, or likely depending on when you are reading this post, at least some holiday is coming up soon — and I hope you are taking a vacation. Even in these crazy times. Some sort of break. Because, I know you are tired. Really tired. SaaS is hard. The New Revenue dials and dashboards in Salesforce go back to zero every month, or at least every quarter. Everyone wants to grow even faster. The team is a bit restless. The customers are great but … they … are … so … tiring. The travel. The competition
Some founders just quit,You can tell them
Even once they have something.
You can help them
You can hug them
You can fund them But sometimes, It’s just been too hard. Find someone to carry some of the load. — Jason BeKind Lemkin (@jasonlk) August 26, 2020
- For the first two weeks, come to the office, but don’t really work. Go to the gym or for a run after you get in. Decompress at the movies in the afternoon. Just let yourself disengage a bit.
- Then, then two weeks really off. Go at least as far as Hawaii, maybe further. Check email only once a day, and do nothing other than simple responses for mission critical items. No phone calls, no work product.

If you aren't sure you can still be CEO anymore, Maybe it's time But more likely, what you just need to do is find one truly great VP/SVP/CXO to help Try that instead — Jason BeKind Lemkin (@jasonlk) October 15, 2020
