Sometimes I find life more jarring than I think most people can understand. As I wait for contract renegotiations at my day job (which are taking FOR-FREAKING-EVER and I’m very frustrated by it) I’m only working three days a week. Which means that I have four days a week off.
It’s actually a very nice balance, if only I could afford to fund a household on three days per week of salary. I can only barely scrape by on that, if I’m lucky. It’s not practical, basically!
The days “off” are good though. I spent Friday and Saturday doing nothing at all. See beach pictures below for evidence of that.
I really love where I live.
I then worked on the launch of my eCourse for Bloggers and Bacon for most of Sunday and Monday.
It is a dream to have that amount of time available to blogging. Even with a few days of lousy sleep, I was able to stretch and walk and work when I felt good, stop to read when I needed a break and generally do what I wanted to.
It’s a nice snapshot into my long term goal of working for myself. Working with my own ebbs and flows of energy is so much nicer than pretending to be “on” when I’m really not.
Do you work for yourself on any scale? How do you manage working with your own energy?
