Is the message here that to be considered an entrepreneur you should be so all-consumed by your work that you don’t even know what day it is? Should other entrepreneurs, who read this, feel guilty for taking a Sunday off?

You can build a successful business, get everything done, love your work, and not feel disorganized, overworked, or see the world through “tunnel vision” eyes.

You can be a “real entrepreneur” and not feel like every day is Tuesday.

People who talk a big game and don’t work are just as big of a problem in start-up culture as entrepreneurs who burn out because they read somewhere that “grinding every day” is the only path to success.
