In 2018, Elon Musk famously said that people need to work “80 to 100 hours per week” if they want to change the world. His comments are a reflection of the view that it is not enough to work smart — you have to work hard, too. 

Unfortunately for Mr. Musk, while working those kinds of hours helped him create successful businesses, they may take a terrible toll on his health and future ventures. Working 80-plus-hour weeks is not sustainable for most and leads to poor concentration and high levels of unsustainable stress. 

From a health perspective, therefore, Musk is not a model for entrepreneurs to follow, and even he admits that. Entrepreneurs need to guard against personal health issues so that they can guide their businesses through tough times. Working long hours is not out

Hawaii health insurance: find affordable coverage

State legislative efforts to preserve or strengthen provisions of the Affordable Care Act

How hard is Hawaii fighting to preserve the Affordable Care Act’s provisions? Compare to other states’ efforts.

After two years of using a technologically troubled state-based enrollment system, Hawaii began using the HealthCare.gov enrollment platform for the 2016 open enrollment period. In November 2016, Hawaii switched to a federally run exchange, although that state still oversees the plans that are sold in the exchange.

Open enrollment for 2020 health plans has ended, although Hawaiians who have qualifying events may still be able to enroll or make changes to their coverage for 2020. The next open enrollment period, for plans effective in 2021, will begin November 1, 2020.

Hawaii’s exchange has two insurers that offer individual market coverage for 2020. Average full-price premiums are decreasing in Hawaii’s individual market for 2020, for the first time since ACA-compliant plans debuted. Rates increased sharply in 2016,
