So another few days went buy working for Annoying Big Client.
And yes, I’m still sworn to look for alternative clients, to diversify, expand. All that, yes.
But while I am dependent on him for 75 percent of my monthly income I can do something else that makes it worthwhile enduring doing work for this man.
I can see my work as giving me something I actually like, even if it is tough. Instead of taking it away from me.
Like, taking away my sense of
– being appreciated personally
– of being heard when I try to address a problem
– of being able to work effectively due to the constant bad decisions of my client for his web services
– and so on.
Taking away those things but earning a buck I need in return.
I always liked martial arts, though. Did a lot of them when I was a teen, in fact.
So I’d like to see this work as mental martial arts. And I like to see every hour I have to spend working for this client as a training program making me a black belt and beyond.
In mental martial arts.
Like keeping my cool, making the best of a bad situation, juggling the actual role of being a chaos manager instead of a marketing manager, all that. All perks of doing mental martial arts.
Then you want something difficult to endure. So you can show how strong you are. Mentally.
I like that.
