Just a little more pain for a lot more freedom.

Just a little more pain for a lot more freedom.

How much pain can you handle if it means future freedom?

I ran a design and marketing agency for a decade. (Wow, I smile as that’s in the past tense.) It’s taken longer than I thought to completely be rid of the thing. Part of it was technical: I hosted 300 or 400 websites at one point. Yeah, sounds great, but it was a maintenance nightmare.

A few years down the road and I still have 2 servers I manage. I’m slowly kicking people off, I mean, migrating clients to other hosting, but each site takes some personal attention. It’s not exactly straightforward to migrate a website from one web host to another.

I’ve spent much of the day doing it. It hasn’t been a fun day. In the least.

But I have maybe half a dozen sites I need to move on my second-to-last server. I’ll also save the cost once I can get those 6 off of there.

Then I’m free. No, I’m ever free-er than I am now.

A little pain for a day. Is it worth my future freedom?

You betcha.

I don't like to call them excuses. They're priorities. With a handful of exceptions, we usually have a choice in our actions. They just need to be prioritized.
