Writing’s a dangerous job.
Sitting there on your rumpus for long stretches of time… letting your legs form dangerous (life ending) blood clots, and wreaking havoc on your entire nervous system — which all can lead to some really NASTY pain.
And, especially BACK pain.
In fact, I knew this one dude who was spending sometimes 8-10 hours straight in front of his computer in a small “closet like” office — writing copy, editing video/audio, messing around with website design etc, who was always in excruciating back pain.
Every movement hurt like hell.
Every shift in his seat like white fire up his spine.
Every turn of his neck agony.
He suffered like this silently for months, but figured it’d just go away on its own. Eventually his doctor recommended some common sense tips like getting up every 20 minutes and leaving his office, sitting on a 3-legged stool (instead of a chair), simple stretching exercises, etc.
Pretty good advice.
And now he tells everyone he knows about it.
Still, I think he’s got it all backwards.
Instead of seeking ways to work longer hours online without pain, why not seek ways to work shorter hours?
This is why I dig email so much.
You sit down.
Bang out an email.
If you have a growing list and know what you’re doing, you can probably make more $$ doing that (20 minutes per day, tops) than you ever will hunched over a computer editing videos, writing 30 page sales letters, tweaking your blog to perfection, etc.
Methinks your back will thank you.
(And your bank account, too…)
