So, we’re back from our holidays, and let me tell you, I had no idea until we got to Italy, how much I really needed this break.
While we were enjoying the free WIFI spots, turns out, I got head hunted on LinkedIn.
Don’t get me wrong, it was gold for the ego (I have never been head hunted before), but the decision-making progress spiraled out of control!
A start up from California can certainly offer money that is rather inspiring to jump on that project. However, it is a truth for many freelancers, that this is the point in time, when you better get out your calculator. In the end, I did not take on the position, as I would probably have ended up paying a fortune for my health insurance and working a lot more hours would’ve simply not been worth it.
How much worth is your head?
How much worth is your sanity?
My workload at the moment allows me to still work on my writing projects. While my bread job has let me down many times before, it still does pay my bills and we’ve got a good thing going.
Creative people need the time to be creative, as it is like breathing. If I had been younger, I may have decided on the money. (Well, probably not.)
Write, write, write!
Plus, I picked up a new project that I personally find really promising and is a lot of fun with some pretty decent people.
Not all that glitters is gold. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is iffy .
Listen to your gut feeling – it’s there for a reason.
So, this is my two cents after a wayyyy too long absence. (I missed you guys! You know who you are.)
Have you been head hunted?
How do you deal with decisions?
Did you have a good summer?
