I’m trying to figure out my best path to success. Is it through freelance writing and translation gigs, working long hours but with the freedom to set my own schedule? Or is it through a safe and well-paid job that leaves evenings and weekends open for writing?
Option A stressed me out, and the long hours left little creativity for my own projects. Option B made me complacent and slow, leaving me with little push to drive my own deadlines.
So which do you prefer? Do you like to starve on your way to inevitable success, or risk the dangers of complacency in a safe and well-regulated office environment?
I don’t know which fits me better yet, and I’m definitely open for secret option C. Lay it on me!
