Some owners equate unscheduled time with freedom. You know, a break from all those things that they just have to do and constantly take care of.
Others see it as undo control over their time, because of course they're doing everything they can to 'make it happen'.
What if freedom is something that meaningful structure allows you to earn, not free time in your calendar to wander aimlessly?
You're the scientist. Be willing to take the risk and collect more data before running away or scoffing at structure. You might just end up with more time.
