The rest of the episode is spent discussing a quote from The Fizzle Show episode about "The Danger of Not Taking Time Off":

I realized in the course of doing business long enough, you really do
learn, oh man, i am the problem in my business right now. I'm the
problem because I can't think straight. I don't know what to do next.
I don't have the right mindset to get the projects that I'm doing over
the finish line.

Through trying to build a business to have the kind of lifestyle I
want, I don't have the kind of lifestyle I want because I'm always
on.

Time off is important stuff indeed. We also talk about the concept of a "Founder's Retreat" as described by Rob Walling.
